Buckminsterfullerene: C60

Fullagar, Wilfred K


A study of the recently discovered molecular allotrope of carbon, C60 (buckminsterfullerene) is presented. The preparation of this potentially useful new material is described, along with its characterisation by X-ray powder diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, mass spectrometry, infrared spectroscopy and ultraviolet/visible/near-infrared spectroscopy. To a lesser extent, its congener C70 is also described. ¶ The newly discovered spectra of the C601-, C602-, C603-, and C604- anions of...[Show more]
