Description: 

Buckminsterfullerine, or C60, also called the "Buckyball", is one of the three forms of elemental carbon. The other two are diamond and graphite. It was recently isolated for the first time in 1990. Considerable amounts of research have gone into determining exactly what sort of things it can be used for, such as lubricants and super-conductors.
