Carbon Fullerene (Buckyball) Modelling Kit
Buckyballs, fullerene molecules or spherical carbon molecules, were first discovered in 1985 and named after Richard Buckminster as the shape resembles the geodesic domes he developed. The kit comprises all the necessary pieces to build a robust buckyball model, which can be reassembled again and again, containing sufficient atoms to see the relationshipsbetween structure and physical properties of the carbon fullerene molecule. These easy-to-build, low-costkits enable children to learn as they follow the building instructions and modeldescription. Shape: Bucky-ball Height: 15cm 60 carbon atoms"
