# Some further fullerenes

In general molecules in the form of cage-like polyhedra solely built
from carbon atoms are called fullerenes.
Fullerenes C_{n} can be constructed for *n=20* and for all
even *n³24*.
They have *n* vertices (i.e. C-atoms), *3n/2* edges, 12 pentagonal
and *(n-20)/2* hexagonal faces.
The most important member of the family of the fullerenes
is C_{60}.
