The polyhedra found here are all constructed from a dodecahedral subunit comprised of three regular pentagons and are collective and Geometrically speaking called Crinkled Polyhedra. While the chemical analog of the Dodecahedra is Dodecahedrane. Thus, the subunit of Dodecahedrane  known as Triquinacene makes these molecular models of Polyhedral Triquinacene.
