About Fullerene C76

Fullerene C76 is a molecule made up of 76 carbon atoms arranged in a series of interlocking hexagons and pentagons, forming a structure that looks similar to a rugby ball. C70 is actually a 37-sided polygon consisting of 12 pentagons and 25 hexagons. It was discovered in 1985 by Professor Sir Harry Kroto, and two Rice University professors, chemists Dr. Richard E. Smalley and Dr. Robert F. Curl Jr., [for which they were jointly awarded the 1996 Nobel Lauriate for chemistry] along with Fullerene C60, is the only molecule composed of a single element to form a hollow spheroids. C70 can be used as an n-channel organic semiconductor. Fullerenes are the third major form of pure carbon; graphite and diamond are the other two.

Carbon Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Carbon's shells is 2, 4 and its electron configuration is [He] 2s2 2p2. In its elemental form, carbon's CAS number is 7440-44-0. Carbon is at the same time one of the softest (graphite) and hardest (diamond) materials found in nature. It is the 15th most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and the fourth most abundant element (by mass) in the universe after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. Carbon was discovered by the Egyptians and Sumerians circa 3750 BC. It was first recognized as an element by Antoine Lavoisierby in 1789.
