Hydrogenation of C60 at 2 GPa and 723–823 K was performed with thermal decomposition of LiAlH4 as a hydrogen source. Analysis
of hydrogenation products showed that the method can produce not only C60H36, but also hydrofullerides C60Hx with 44 < x < 52.
Unlike other hydrogenation methods in which pristine C60 reacts with hydrogen, the high pressure/high temperature conditions result
first in C60 polymerization into a tetragonal phase which later reacts with hydrogen. It is suggested that hydrogen first attacks intermolecular
carbon–carbon bonds, resulting in complete depolymerization of C60 at a later stage of the hydrogenation process. This model
suggests the possibility to select starting points for hydrogenation by choosing specific polymeric structures of C60. Hydrogenated polymeric
C60 was identified as an intermediate reaction product. Characterization of highly reduced material was performed by Raman and
IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and atmospheric pressure photoionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass
