    Where to buy buckyballs???

    Does anyone know where i can buy macro quantities of buckyballs? Or carbon nano tubes and all the other exotic materials out there. Just for displaying purposes, i dont mean to use them. And furthermore, does anyone have a pic or a link that show buckyballs macroscopically? All the fotos i searched for turned out just the computer models.

    I don't think that they are much to look at, they pretty much look like graphite. You can buy them from Aldrich though. Bring your wallet, they cost around $250/gram. You can get 25 mg for about $20, however.
