In which among the following, the hollow, sphere, ellipsoid, or tube arrangements of Carbon Atoms can be seen?
Fullerenes are a form of carbon molecule that is neither graphite nor diamond. They consist of a spherical, ellipsoid, or cylindrical arrangement of dozens of carbon atoms. Fullerenes were named after Richard Buckminster Fuller, an architect known for the design of geodesic domes which resemble spherical fullerenes in appearance. A spherical fullerene looks like a soccer ball, and are often called “buckyballs,” whereas cylindrical fullerenes are known as “Bucky tubes” or “nanotubes”. A fullerene is a pure carbon molecule composed of at least 60 atoms of carbon.
