Since the production of larger amounts of fullerenes has
become possible by means of an electric
interest in
this new allotropic form of carbon has grown by leaps and
bound^.^^] The availability of C,, with reproducible quality
and the knowledge of the material properties of C,, in the
solid state are important for reliable research results as well
as potential technical applications. C,, forms van der Waals
crystals with a face-centered cubic structure.[5,6l Foreign
atoms can be deposited in the interstices giving the crystal
superconducting properties, for example.[71Fullerenes can
be considered molecular analogues of the microporous carbon materials, which because of their large inner surfaces are
used as adsorbents.[*] For the application, storage, and production of fullerenes it is crucial to know if this allotropic
form of carbon is also able to absorb substances from the
environment and thus change the properties of the crystals.
An indication of such effects is, for example, the fact that
we and others have found the experimentally determined
densities of the crystals to be too great (1.721.78 g ~ m - ~ ) . L ~(The

crystal structure analysis of C,, is only 1.68 gcrn-j.) The

ties, and widths of the additional reflections of the recrystallized samples correlate with the amount of solvent detected
by IR spectroscopy. The position of the main reflections
(face-centered cubic lattice with a=1415.2 pm) differs only
slightly for the various samples. The additional reflections
indicate the formation of partially long range-ordered solvent adducts.
By rigorous drying of the samples under vacuum
mbar at about 350K, the solvent can be removed until
no C-H stretching bands remain in the IR spectrum. However, absorptions in the fingerprint region at 1627, 1537,[201
and especially at 1384 cm-' arise.
The band at 1384 cm-' is intense for sublimed samples
and becomes the strongest band in the spectrum when the
sample is stored with exposure to light and air; no other
absorptions arise, and the C,, bands do not change appreciably. The position and the isolated appearance of this band
could indicate the formation of a C-0 single bond similar to
those found in aryl ethers. The X-ray structure analysis of a
single crystal obtained by sublimation clearly showed electron density maxima outside the perimeter of C6,; these were
assigned to statistically occupied oxygen positions distributed over eight hexagonal surfaces.16]
The presence of paramagnetic impurites in extremely
varying concentrations was established by EPR spec-

troscopy. The parameters of the spectra[221show that the
signals can hardly be attributed to an intrisic spin density['21
of pure C6,; rather they indicate paramagnetic impurities
that apparently can be removed efficiently but not completely by sublimation.
More detailed information about the nature of the trace
impurites is obtained from thermal degradation experiments
in UHV.[231The analysis can be conducted to be either bulk
specific or surface sensitive by varying the rate of heating
between 1 K s - ' and 10 Ks-'. In Figure 2 the bulk desorption of a C,, sample recrystallized from toluene is compared
to that of a sublimed sample. Only water and traces of CO,
and CO were released from the sublimed material at 500 K ;
no water but oxygen and numerous organic fragments escaped from the recrystallized material in two temperature
regions at 523 K and 723 K. The analysis of the peak profile
in Figure 2 reveals two series of fragments assigned to diethyl
ether ( m / z 27, 28, 29, 31,45, 59, 74) and toluene ( m / z 39, 51,
65,91,92). Neither CO nor CO, were detected in any significant amounts. Ether had been used to wash the crystals and
was apparently incorporated in the crystals in the same way
as the actual solvent had been, though the latter escapes
primarily at higher temperatures. The high temperatures required for desorption point to considerable binding energies
in the van der Waals crystal. It is certainly plausible that
these impurites could affect the lattice dynamics of the crystals,'4. 5,101
The release of a substantial amount of molecular oxygen
from the crystals containing solvent takes place at a different
temperature (670 K) than the release of the organic impurities. The oxygen in the crystal is present in a form that does
not lead to the oxidation of C,, upon thermal activation.
This finding is in agreement with the observed stability of
molecular C,, to oxidation.[3b,1 6 1 Comparison of the oxygen
desorption data with the IR spectra reveals that the intensity
of the band at 1384 cm- ' does not correlate with the amount
of liberated oxygen. If the oxygen actually arises from the
compound that produces this IR band, then it either reacts
in the sublimed material with hydrogen also present[21] to
form water, or it binds with the substrate. In material containing solvent the single atoms of oxygen react to give O,,
but never form CO,. This is in accord with earlier oxidation

experiments,[24] in which formation of CO, was first observed above 700K in diluted oxygen.
Desorption experiments with rapid heating rates provide
a complementary picture. The data for the sublimed material
( a s ) and the recrystallized material (d-f) are summarized in
Figure 3. The desorption of toluene (not shown) exhibits the
same pattern as seen in Figure 2. The differences in the desorption behavior originate in the various reaction kinetics of
oxygen and not from experimental artifacts.
Figure 3 a verifies that untreated C,, indeed releases
molecular oxygen in two temperature ranges, possibly implying that the oxygen is located at different depth (subsurface and bulk) in the crystal. The desorption is complete after

the sample is heated once, but oxygen can be readsorbed by
treatment of the sample with 200 mbar of 0, for 2 h at 300 K
(Fig. 3 b). Thus even the most pure material takes up oxygen
from the air or from impure inert gas. Storage under 1 mbar
of 0, for 48 h leads to surface oxidation, as demonstrated by
the formation of CO, (Fig. 3c); this behavior agrees with the
known spectral data."']

Recrystallized material, on the other hand, contains oxygen in another binding state initially and provides a spectrum (Fig. 3d) similar to that in Figure 2. After desorption
of the solvent, at least from the regions close to the surface,
the sample can be loaded like the sublimed material (Fig. 3 e)
and is then sensitive to oxidation. Spectrum 3 f was obtained
from a sample that was treated analogously to the sample
that provided spectrum 3 b and shows that brief treatment
with 0, does not cause oxidation; however, heating the
sample under a low partial pressure of CO, leads to dissolution in the bulk (decrease in the baseline to 650 K).
In summary, these experiments show that solid C,, is not
an inert van der Waals crystal, but a solid with complex
reaction behavior. The internal surface of the crystal is either
saturated with solvent molecules or contains chemisorbed
atoms of oxygen. This matches the sorption properties of
active charcoal, the surface of which takes up organic substances and/or oxygen in chemisorbed or covalently bound
forms.[s1The characteristics of solid C,, also correspond to
those of a single fullerene molecule, which is capable of binding a large variety of functional groups on its
The interaction of oxygen atoms with C,, can be of various strengths. We identified an epoxide-like binding as the
weakest; it can be converted by tempering (sublimation) into
a stronger binding mode (dry1 ether). These two types of
binding differ in their IR data and in their behavior in thermal desorption; their existence is suggested by the data from
mass spectrometry, the ESR signals, and the results of singlecrystal X-ray diffraction experiments. These oxygen adducts
differ markedly from those that produce CO, upon thermal
decomposition; this latter type forms only slowly on the
crystal surface with exclusion of light and moisture and apparently gives rise to the precursor for the total oxidationrl7, of C60.The existence of chemically activated oxygen should be taken into account in considering the behavior
of C,, under catalytically oxidizing conditions.
The differing desorption behavior of the solvents ether
and toluene suggests that an intrinsic characteristic of C,, is
its ability to enter into specific electronic interactions; however, only experiments with thin films can eliminate possible
topochemical effects superimposed on this intrinsic property. Until now we have consciously conducted our investigations to avoid a photochemically assisted adsorption+ven
in the dark the effects of small amounts of foreign atoms are
complex enough.

and cooled the entire apparatus with a water-jacket. A continuous flow of
helium at a total pressure of 140 mbar proved to be advantageous. An
air-tight apparatus (leakproof under static high vacuum) and pure helium
are extremely important for respectable yields. The crude extract, obtained
in a maximum of 1 5 % yield, was separated by chromatography (in the
dark, eluting with toluene) into C,,, C,,, and higher fullerenes. The purity
of the fractions was determined by UVjVIS spectroscopy. This highly
sensitive method showed that at this point there is only an insignificant
amount of fullerene oxide.[l5,16] Conventional elemental analysis showed
about 99% C and less than 1 % H.
