We report here a facile solution method to synthesis of C60 nanorods. A very simple and effective solvent, neat m-xylene, from which C60 can rapidly grow into individual novel nanorods with widths and thicknesses of the order of nanometers was found as a shape controller. These unusual nanorods can easily grow on various substrates such as glass and silicon, and nanorods with different diameters and length-to-diameter ratios can be synthesized under different growth conditions. The smallest nanorods we obtained have widths smaller than 30 nm. The nanorods obtained are highly crystalline and single phase.
