Transmission electron microscopy investigation of fullerene nanowhiskers and needle-like precipitates formed by using C60 and (η2-C60)Pt(PPh3)2
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 03 March 2011
Nanowhiskers and needle-like precipitates obtained by the liquid-liquid interfacial precipitation method for the systems of isopropyl alcohol and toluene solutions of C60 and (η2-C60)Pt(PPh3)2 were examined by transmission electron microscopy. Morphology of the C60 precipitates was remarkably changed by the addition of (η2-C60)Pt(PPh3)2 in the C60 toluene solution, and capsular needle-like crystals of C60 were formed. C60 cages were found to be directly contacted along the growth axis of (η2-C60)Pt(PPh3)2 needle-like crystals.
