Abstract [en]

C60 nanotubes with outer diameters ranging from 400–800 nm were polymerized at 1.5 GPa, 573 K and 2.0 GPa, 700 K, respectively. Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy were employed to characterize the polymeric phases of the treated samples. Both Raman and photoluminescence spectra showed that the C60 nanotubes transformed into the dimer and orthorhombic phases under the two different conditions, respectively. The photoluminescence peaks were tuned from visible to near infrared range. Comparative studies indicated that C60 nanotubes were more difficult to polymerize than bulk C60 material under the same conditions due to the nanoscale size effect in the C60 nanotubes.
