What is C60?

C60, carbon 60 or buckminsterfullerene, also known as buckyball, is a type of fullerene. The tiny molecule has sixty carbon atoms, hence the name. The atoms have a spherical arrangement forming the molecule. Fullerene is a family of different carbon structures. Fullerenes can have as few as twenty carbon atoms or as many as a hundred. They are known to have interest chemical properties that have made them quite popular in various industries. The full spectrum of possible applications of fullerenes such as C60 is still being explored.

What is Buckminsterfullerene?

Buckminsterfullerene resembles a football or soccer ball as it is known stateside. The molecule has a truncated icosahedrons shape, kind of a cage like structured with a fused ring. The molecule has twelve pentagons and twenty hexagons. One carbon atom is at every vertex of all the polygons. A bond between two carbon atoms forms each edge of every polygon.

Buckminsterfullerene is an allotrope of carbon. It is a macromolecule. C60 is a pure carbon molecule, much like graphite and diamond. It has catenation property and can self link that makes formation of long chain of the molecule possible. The IUPAC name of buckminsterfullerene is (C60-Ih)[5,6]fullerene. The chemical formula is C60 and the molar mass is 720.66 g•mol−1. The appearance of the molecule is dark crystals that look like needles. The density of the insoluble molecule is 1.65 g/cm3.

Brief History of Carbon 60

C60 was recently discovered in 1985. It was the third allotrope of carbon to have been discovered and then manufactured. Four scientists are credited with the discovery of buckminsterfullerene. The molecule is named in the honor of Buckminster Fuller. He was an American architect who invented geodesic dome. The spherical C60 molecules look similar to the geodesic dome popularized by Buckminster Fuller. Other popular fullerenes are C72, C76, C82 and C84. These along with C60 are found in nature. They are found in lightning discharge, soot and shungite, which is a mineral. C60 is also found in dust around stars.

The C60 used in various industries and for myriad applications is manufactured in laboratories. Carbon electrodes are subjected to electric discharges to form soot. Carbon 60 molecules are extracted from the soot. C60 fullerene or buckyballs have fascinating many scientists because of various reasons. The molecules are substantially stable. They do not dissolve in water that easily. They do not dissolve in most solvents. The spherical structure of the crystal can effectively trap more atoms and the molecule can serve as a superconductor. The molecule behaves as a particle and as a wave in quantum physics.

C60 is capable of enduring high pressures and temperatures. The molecule interacts with other atoms without compromising its shape or structure. The molecule can take on extra electrons through oxidization, which is a reversible process. Carbon 60 molecules transmit slightly bluish and reddish lights giving a purplish hue if the preparation is pure. In its solid state, C60 is relatively soft. It is similar to graphite that is used in pencils. However, when exposed to enormous pressure, C60 can turn hard like diamond. Exposure to light of higher intensities increases the absorption ability of the molecule. C60 is an antioxidant that has been proved to be absolutely harmless for rats. There is reason to believe C60 can prolong longevity or lifespan of rats, as has been found in an extensive research conducted a few years back.

Uses of C60

C60 is a promising molecule. It is still not clear how many different ways the molecule may be used and to what extent. For now, the allotrope of carbon is used as a light absorber and an attractor of electrons so C60 has found its utility in solar cells. It is quite effective at generating power when exposed to solar energy. Buckyballs or C60 are used in lubricants. They are presently being explored for their effectiveness as and in electrical conductors as well as superconductors.

There is ongoing research exploring the ability of fullerene buckyballs to store hydrogen. If it is proven to be effective on a practical scale, then C60 may find good use as a source of fuel, especially for cars powered by hydrogen. Some manufacturers are using non-carbon fullerenes in bulletproof vests. C60 is a powerful antioxidant and can fight free radicals must more effectively and quickly than those we consume or rely on now. C60 may be effective at neutralizing bacteria in water and the various types of purification and filtration systems.
