Production of f0 (1710), a theoretical endeavor of pure scalar glueball state, is studied in detail from exclusive rare B decay within the framework of perturbative QCD. The branching fraction for B± → K* ± f0 (1710) → K* ± (K over(K, ̄)) is estimated to be about 8 × 10-6, while for B± → K± f0 (1710) → K± (K over(K, ̄)) it is smaller by roughly an order of magnitude. With the accumulation of almost 1 billion B over(B, ̄) pairs from the BaBar and Belle experiments to date, hunting for a scalar glueball via these rare decay modes should be attainable.
