Fullerene is an allotrope of carbon. Its shape is similar to a football with five-membered pentagonal rings of alternating double and single bonds. It is used in antiviral and antioxidant applications in various imp fields, e.g. medical applications.

Fullerene is an allotrope of carbon where the overall structure is quite similar to a football. There are units of pentagonal rings of alternate double and single bonds of carbon derivates of fullerene. They are used in many antiviral treatments and antioxidation properties.

Fullerene is one of the allotropes of carbon. It was named after American architect Buckminister Fuller since it resembles the structure of the geodesic dome. A polyhedral carbon structure composed of around 60-80 carbon atoms in pentagon and hexagon configuration.

Dear Deepshikha, Fullerene is an allotrope of carbon which is similar to a football. It has 60 carbon atoms joined together, and no other element in it. There are various types of fullerenes. C60, C70, C74 and C75 are the members of the fullerene family. But C60 (pronounced as C sixty) is the most stable... read more

Dear Deepshikha,
Fullerene is an allotrope of carbon which is similar to a football. It has 60 carbon atoms joined together, and no other element in it. There are various types of fullerenes. C60, C70, C74 and C75 are the members of the fullerene family. But C60 (pronounced as C sixty) is the most stable and most studied form of fullerenes. The nature of the bond, which is joining these atoms together is covalent.
