Chemistry Shirt | Buckminsterfullerene


Click on these images to zoom in on the design.

At first glance it looks like a soccer jock shirt, but it's actually a nerdy chemistry shirt. This chemistry shirt features the buckminsterfullerene molecule, which is a form of carbon in the shape of a soccer ball (technically the truncated icosahedron). The buckminsterfullerene, also known as the buckyball, is the roundest known molecule in the world. The shirt also says "Est. 1985" which is the year the buckyball was discovered. Since the buckyball (C60 molecule) consists of carbon atoms at each of the vertices of the truncated icosahedron, "CARBON 60" is displayed on the back of this shirt.

We have these chemistry t-shirts and hoodies in a wide variety of styles. Many items come in several colors, so please click the thumbnails to see all available colors.
