Molecular structure of C60, a carbon allotrope being studied for its incredible health benefits.
Among the most important discoveries of our time, Carbon 60 (C60), or “Fullerene” as it has come to be known in the industry, is a bit of a miracle element. It was identified in 1985 by Rice University researchers in Texas who won the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
It is a carbon like diamond or graphite, but with a unique structure—it looks a bit like a tiny soccer ball because its molecule contains sixty carbon atoms that form a hollow sphere of 30 highly conjugated double-bonds. This shape resembles the kind of geodesic dome buildings that the famous American architect, Buckminister Fuller, used to design. The name “Fullerene” is a tribute.
This carbon molecule is considered one of the most exciting discoveries in the world of chemistry because it has now been found to have many practical uses ranging from rocket fuel to electronics, to creating super-strong materials. Most importantly, numerous scientific studies in the last 20 years have found that C60 offers brilliant health enhancing properties: it increases longevity, improves bone and joint strength, and generally boosts our immunity system.
Since 1996, C60 has been available in edible forms, mixed commonly with olive oil. While this has made C60 accessible for health purposes, oil is less effective as a carrier in our water-based bodies. More importantly, the production process of housing C60 in oil produces solvents that contribute to toxicity, and has therefore been an area of study and concern. Even the highest purity methods used today fail at removing trace poisonous solvents from traditionally processed Fullerol and C60 derivatives.
Unlike oil-based Fullerene products that crowd the shelves, Buckyol has invented a completely water-soluble C60 that is much more ‘bioavailable’. As 60% of the human adult body is water, Buckyol absorbs and releases C60 benefits much quicker.
Edible oils as carriers in other Fullerene products require consumption of oil, which is not a natural food for the human body—excessive oil has been found to enhance the oxidization of cells, leading to undesirable side effects over time. Buckyol’s water-based C60 formula carries no such risks.
5 patents pending
In 2018, Buckyol's R&D team patented a non-toxic method to create anisotropic fullerols. We believe this invention of directionally oriented hydroxylation, trademarked as Buckyol® C60, is a major breakthrough that will make even more applications of nano-technologies into preventative healthcare a reality.
