Last year, Professor Andrew Barron, Ser Cymru chair in engineering at Swansea University, also a chair at Rice University in Texas, found buckyballs gain the ability to capture carbon dioxide when combined with the chemical polyethyleneimine (PEI).
Zucker has to fund a recall of all Buckyballs, and will have to waive his right to pursue legal action against the CPSC.
(88) The company responded by removing all "13+" labels on Buckyballs's product packaging, and also added a new label stating, "Keep Away From All Children," as well as language explaining the hazard of swallowing magnets.
Maxfield & Oberton's troubles started in July 2012, when the CPSC began legal proceedings to ban and recall Buckyballs on the grounds that the toy was dangerous for children.
Here, we calculate the nature of the image-potential states in a spherical electron gas (SEG) confined to the surface of a buckyball in a similar fashion as in the case of a nanotube.
(2) Ahmari describes how Zucker and his partner launched the Buckyballs business, then how the CPSC intimidated numerous retailers into dropping the product and ultimately forced Zucker out of business.
In January, an unnamed doctor sent a report to the Consumer Product Safety Commission about a 2-year-old who spent a week in intensive care and faced multiple surgeries after swallowing 62 Buckyball magnets.
To prepare new buckyballs, a fundamental understanding of the polymerization of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) is important.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has sued to stop the sale of high-powered magnetic toys known as Buckyballs and Buckycubes, saying that dozens of young children and teens have required surgery after swallowing multiple tiny magnets.

Several forms of carbon, such as carbon nanotubes (long tubes) and buckyballs (small spheres), are being studied for applications in materials science, electronics, and other areas of nanotechnology.
A brand new one making waves is Buckyballs. It is a collection of 216 magnetic balls that can be moulded into different shapes and patterns.
Nanoparticles (i.e., 400 to 700 nanometers, with at least one dimension in the nanoscale) would include spheres; particles of irregular geometry; sheets, foils, and fibers; wires and tubes, such as carbon nanoparticles (graphite, nanotubes, spherical particles such as "buckyballs," and the like); glassy nanoparticles, including but not limited to silica-based nanoparticles; all varieties of nanoclays (preferably, substituted montmorillonite); metal oxides, metal sulfides, metal nitrides, and other such ionic nanoparticles; metal complex nanoparticles; metallic and metallic alloy nanoparticles (nanowires, nanospheres, nanosized sheets, and foils); and colloidal nanoparticles.
