What is ESS60?
- ESS60 is a specific purity of C60 with relation to C70 and higher fullerenes
- One of the allotropic forms of carbon
- Discovered by Rice University researchers in 1985
Prior to the discovery of ESS60, there were only 2 types of allotropic carbon found in nature: diamond and graphite. ESS60 was added to the list in the mid-1980s.
The Go-To Source for Fullerenes
MyVitalC is the go-to source for ESS60 in oil. Our product is pure and high quality. Our parent company has been providing fullerenes to research institutions aournd the world since the summer of 1991. We manufacture them for research andcommercial clients, including most competitors selling the product in oil. If you want it from the source, buy from MyVitalC.

The Origins of ESS60 Fullerenes
The material’s namesake dates back to 1985 when Richard Buckminster Fuller created the geodesic dome. Fuller was considered a pioneer due to his revolutionary work in construction, public service, and technology. He consistently worked on projects meant to improve the overall human condition. His geodesic dome was no exception. It was meant to make the shelter more affordable, comfortable, and efficient for people of all economic backgrounds.
This architectural construction looked similar to the Carbon Fullerene sphere ESS60 in its natural state; thus, the molecule was named, by Richard Smalley, the fullerene. Following that discovery, another new carbon structure was found: Carbon Nanotubes! These nanotubes are seamless cylinders of hexagonal carbon networks, or tubes, formed either as a single-wall molecule or multiwalled molecules.
Fullerene – A molecule of carbon in the form of a hollow sphere, ellipsoid, tube, and many other different shapes.

Uses and Application
Carbon fullerenes are spherical, caged molecules with carbon atoms located at the corner of the polyhedral structure consisting of pentagons and hexagons. They are shaped like soccer balls!
Primarily used to enhance conduction, fullerenes – also referred to as buckyballs – are used for a myriad of purposes. Examples include:
- Photodetectors and Voltaics
- Polymer electronics and additives
- Antioxidants and biopharmaceuticals
- Bioscience research
- Safety products
- Chemical storage
- Health and public service
The Many Forms of Carbon Fullerenes
- Carbon 60 – ESS60 (most abundant form, soccer ball shape)
- Carbon 70 (rugby ball shape)
- Carbon 84 (spherical shape)
We have worked with industry-leading research labs and institutions such as MIT, Rice University, IFW Dresden EV, the University of Texas, UC Berkley, I.E. DuPont, and more.
