ABSTRACT
Smalley, Richard Errett (1943-) was an American physical chemist who did groundbreaking research into fullerenes, large carbon molecules having a �closed cage� shape and a hollow interior. He shared the 1996 Nobel Prize in chemistry with Harold Kroto and Robert Floyd Curl, Jr., for their discovery of the first fullerene, the C60, also known as the buckminsterfullerene .
