Fullerenes are a class of spherical cluster compounds made up of a large number of carbon atoms, they are also known as Buckyballs. The 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to the inventors "for their discovery of fullerenes."
Fullerene structures are made up of covalently-bonded carbon, much like diamond or graphite, but fullerenes display very different physical properties. These new, uniquely-structured compounds have been the subject of countless research efforts in the past several decades, and we expect this trend to continue.
