The behavior of Buckminsterfullerene (C60) molecules was investigated. An external electric field along a fivefold axis was applied for the investigation. The density functional theory was use for the calculations for total energy (TE) of the lithium-doped C60 system. It was observed that the C60 molecules acted as a partial Faraday cage with only 25% of the field penetrating the interior of the molecule.
