Measurements of thermophysical properties as a tool to study the phase diagrams of fullerenes under pressure
1997 (English)In: High Temperatures - High Pressures vol. 29, issue 1: Proceedings of the 14th European Conference on Thermophysical Properties (ECTP-14), Lyon 1996., London: Pion Press , 1997, 119-124 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The ways in which measurements of thermophysical properties such as the thermal conductivity and the bulk modulus can be used as tools to study the evolution of the translational, rotational, and orientational structure of fullerenes with temperature and pressure are discussed. Recent experimental data for C60 and C70 are discussed and explained in terms of models for their orientational and rotational structures. In particular, effects of molecular reorientation, orientational ordering, and the freezing in of abnormal orientational order in C60 under pressures up to 1 GPa at temperatures below 300 K, and polymerization of C60 at similar pressures above 450 K, are examined.
