Look Out, Graphene: Boron Atoms Form Cages And Flat Sheets Like Carbon

Chemists working in the U.S. and China say they have discovered a new molecular structure made out of boron atoms.

They believe the structure is made of 40 boron atoms that link together into a cage, which might be useful in storing hydrogen. 

"This is the first time that a boron cage has been observed experimentally," said Lai-Sheng Wang, a Brown University chemistry professor and the study’s leader. "As a chemist, finding new molecules and structures is always exciting. The fact that boron has the capacity to form this kind of structure is very interesting."

They described their work uncovering experimental evidence for the molecule, which they have called borospherene, in a recent issue of the journal Nature Chemistry.
