2005 (English)In: Proceedings of the Joint 20th AIRAPT and 43rd EHPRG Conf. on High Pressure Science and Technology, Karlsruhe 2005, 2005, Nanomat-O133 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
C60 nanorods, about 200 nm in diameter and several micrometers in length and with a rectangular cross section, have been synthesized by a simple solution-growth method. Raman spectroscopy and TEM indicate that the C60 nanorods have a fcc crystalline structure similar to that of pristine C60. Nanorods were polymerized at high temperature and high pressure below 2 GPa. Two different polymeric structures, orthorhombic and tetragonal as determined by Raman spectroscopy, have been obtained under different high temperature and high pressure conditions. The high-pressure induced polymeric samples keep the original nanometer scale rod shape.
