Although the most famous of fullerenes, the BuckyBall has many cousins. Scientists have discovered hundreds of combinations of these interlocking pentagon/hexagon formations such as: BuckyBabies - spheroid carbon molecules containing fewer than 60 carbon atoms; FuzzyBalls - BuckyBalls with 60 hydrogen atoms attached; Giant Fullerenes - fullerenes containing hundreds of carbon atoms; Nanotubes (or BuckyTubes) - tubes of carbon created by passing an electric current between graphite rods; DopeyBalls - BuckyBalls which are doped with metal; HairyBalls - BuckyBalls that have split tubes hanging from their bodies, which could potentially be very useful in HIV research.
