## The C-320 Fullerene Polyhedron

The duals of the geodesic domes are polyhedra with hexagonal and pentagonal faces. This particular one has 320 vertices, with those vertices representing carbon atoms. Here is C-320 as a polyhedron. The next image shows this molecule as a ball-and-stick … Continue reading

## An Eighty-Atom Fullerene Molecule

The fullerene molecule that gets the most attention is C60, so I’m giving C80 a little bit of the spotlight, for balance. I made this using polyhedral modeling software called Stella 4d; you can try it for yourself at this website.

## Buckminsterfullerene Molecular Models: Three Different Versions

Buckminsterfullerene, a molecule made of 60 carbon atoms, and having the shape of a truncated icosahedron, is easily modeled with Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator (see http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php to try or buy this program). The first image shows the”ball and stick” version … Continue reading

## A 240-Atom Fullerene, and Related Polyhedra

The most well-known fullerene has the shape of a truncated icosahedron, best-known outside the world of geometry as the “futbol” / “football” / “soccer ball” shape — twenty hexagons and twelve pentagons, all regular. The formula for this molecule is C60. … Continue reading

## A Truncated Icosahedron with Sixty Extra Hexagons

I created this using Stella 4d, which is available (including a free trial download) at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. With adjustments in edge lengths to make the bond lengths correct, this would be the shape of a C180 fullerene molecule. If the thirty-two faces … Continue reading
