This monograph identifies polytopes which are "combinatorially R1-embeddable", inside of fascinating lists of polytopal graphs, i.e. such that corresponding polytopes are both trendy mathematically (regular walls, root lattices, uniform polytopes and so on), or acceptable in chemistry (fullerenes, polycycles, etc.). The embeddability, if any, offers functions to chemical graphs and, within the first case, it supplies new combinatorial point of view to "R2-prominent" affine polytopal gadgets. The lists of polytopal graphs within the ebook come from huge components of geometry, crystallography and graph concept. The publication concentrates on such concise and, up to attainable, self sufficient definitions. The scale-isometric embeddability — the most unifying query, to which these lists are subjected — is gifted with the minimal of technicalities.
