Product details:

Fullerene is an allotrope of carbon. The structure of C60 is a truncated icosahedron, which resembles an association football ball of the type made of twenty hexagons and twelve pentagons, with a carbon atom at the vertices of each polygon and a bond along each polygon edge. The van der Waals diameter of a C60 molecule is about 1.1 nanometers (nm). The nucleus to nucleus diameter of a C60 molecule is about 0.71 nm.

The C60 molecule has two bond lengths. The 6:6 ring bonds (between two hexagons) can be considered "double bonds" and are shorter than the 6:5 bonds (between a hexagon and a pentagon). Its average bond length is 1.4 angstroms.

Due to its excellent radical scavenging, light absorption, superconducting semiconductors, perfect structure, DNA affinity, electron acceptor, efficient adsorption characteristics of embedded molecules (or functional), fullerenes and their derivatives have been widely applied in cosmetics , pharmaceutical intermediates, health products, rubber/film material modifiers, high energy, composite materials, additives, and other areas.
