Complete answer:

Carbon has three major allotropes namely diamond, graphite and fullerenes. Fullerenes are the only pure form of carbon. They have smooth structures without having dangling bonds. They do not have any type of swinging and have spongy structure. Fullerenes are cage-like molecules. Thermodynamically it is the most permanent ailment of carbon.
