Boron Buckyball Envisioned

A study published by Rice University scientists recently predicted the existence of a new “buckyball-like” molecule consisting entirely of boron atoms. The boron buckyball has 80 atoms and is structurally similar to the original C60 fullerene, but its additional atoms ...
