The fullerenes structure was first discovered by Buckminster Fuller for whom they are named. Research on fullerenes has resulted in the synthesis of a steadily increasing number of new compounds, already more than one thousand. The discovery of fullerenes also led to research in carbon nanotubes, the cylindrical cousins of buckyballs, and the development of new fields of advanced materials and eventually the highly touted graphene. Carbon nanotubes’ unique structural and bonding properties, whereby inner tubes in a multi-walled nanotube can slide within an outer tube, suggest uses in tiny motors and as ball bearings and lubricants. Twenty-five years after their discovery, fullerenes provide abundant research opportunities in pure chemistry, materials science, pharmaceutical chemistry, and nanotechnology. The Fullerenes structure is composed of 5 member carbon atom rings separated by 6 member carbon atoms rings. Fullerenes are the original nano material.
Fullerenes Applications take advantage of their unique carbon atom arrangement. They are primarily used to enhance conduction. They do not provide large mechanical property improvements due to their low aspect ratio. Fullerene applications include;
