Preparation of Single-Crystal Buckminster Fullerenes from Transport Reactions
Crystals of buckminsterfullerene were prepared from super-saturated solution in cyclohexane and by sublimation of powder. In both cases we obtained crystals with well expressed smooth and shiny faces. X-ray characterization showed that crystals prepared by sublimation were monocrystalline with long range order and crystals from solution were disordered. The crystals were further characterized by IR and Raman spectroscopy.
