Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Shape-controllable fullerene nanocrystals have been successfully fabricated by the reprecipitation method. C60 solution was simply injected into the organic poor solvent, and the resulting C60 nanocrystals were prepared as dispersion. The size and morphology, which are evaluated by the SEM, were dependent on concentration and solvent combination (both of good and poor solvents). The various types of C60 nanocrystals such as octahedron, hexagon and rod-like structure were found by changing the reprecipitation conditions. The powder X-ray refractive diffraction patterns of C60 nanocrystals suggested that most of their structure is the fcc. Details of the preparation processes will be reported.
