  • has a photo of the first effective production method, which passes a large current between two carbon rods
  • and forward cuts (their editing is very annoying) shows how fullerene dissolves in an organic solvent TODO name, sounds like thodium? and produces a violet solution, while graphite doesn't. A Ultrasonic bath is needed for the solution to form however.
  • fullerene is not a good lubricant despite being a little ball, because it is reactive and polymerises under pressure
