Abstract [en]

Single-crystalline C60â1m-xylene nanorods with a hexagonal structure were successfully synthesized

by evaporating a C60 solution in m-xylene at room temperature. The ratio of the length to the diameter

of the nanorods can be controlled in the range of 10 to over 1000 for different applications. The

photoluminescence (PL) intensity of the nanorods is about 2 orders of magnitude higher than that for

pristine C60 crystals in air. Both UV and Raman results indicate that there is no charge transfer between

C60 and m-xylene. It was found that the interaction between C60 and m-xylene molecules is of the van

der Waals type. This interaction reduces the icosahedral symmetry of C60 molecule and induces strong

PL from the solvate nanorods.
