AKA Buckminsterfullerene

The buckyball, short for buckminsterfullerene, is a simple-yet-versatile nanoparticle. It’s made from 60 carbon atoms and sort of looks like a tiny little soccer ball. Some uses for it include cheap solar panels and possibly even new ways of delivering drugs! They can also store hydrogen and decrease bacteria in water pipes. Yet another function? It makes a super cool piece of jewelry. Buy our buckyball necklace for yourself or a friend. It is an excellent gift for engineers, nanotechnology researchers, chemists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
