These images show structures developed
in Roger Taylor's research group in the Fullerene Science Centre at Sussex
University, where C60 molecules have new functional groups
attached to them, for example bonding additional flourine atoms, or methyl
groups onto the ball. This radically changes the properties of the C60,
such as solubility.
The images were generated from structures produced with Cerius2, filtered
and fed through povray. Click
