Self-assembly of C60 fullerene molecules within the hexane–xylene solvent system: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0



The habits of self-assembly of C60 molecules in options of C60/hexane/xylene have been studied by the strategies of refractometry, ultraviolet–seen spectroscopy and dynamic mild scattering (DLS). It was experimentally proven that with a slight improve in both the focus of fullerene C60 or the amount fraction of xylene in a C60/hexane/xylene resolution, the refractive index of the medium will increase. Rising the xylene content material of the C60/hexane/xylene system results in important adjustments in cost switch between solute and solvent, which, specifically, exhibit each a optimistic solvatochromic impact and a hypochromic impact in a robust absorption band at ∼328.8 nm. It was established by the DLS technique that with a rise within the focus of C60 within the C60/hexane resolution from 20 to 30 mg/dm3, the utmost radius of the synthesized nanoclusters in options modified from ∼6.25 nm to ∼17.2 nm, and in addition with a rise within the mole fraction of xylene within the C60/hexane/xylene system, the cluster measurement step by step decreases.
