Abstract

An extremely simple and inexpensive apparatus for preparation of the C60 and C70 fullerenes is described. An efficient separatory technique is described which implements a phenylglycine based HFLC column for preparation of high purity (99.99%) C60 and C70 samples. Treatment of C60 with osmium tetroxide and pyridine gives the osmate ester (2:1 adduct) and establishes that oxygen functionality can be added to C60 without disrupting the carbon framework. Raman spectroscopy of high purity C60 indicates that several lines previously not assigned to C60 (D.S.Bethune, G.Meijer, W.C.Tang, and H.J.Rosen, Chem.Phys.Lett.174, 219(1990)) are attributable to C60.
