Abstract

We have first developed useful Solvent-Induced Reprecipitation Process, and have first succeeded in fabricating C60 nano/microcrystals with various shape and size, using m-xylene and 2-propanol as good and poor solvents, respectively. It was found that the resulting Cm nano/microcrystals had a hexagonal crystal structure, and that were a kind of crystal solvates in which the molar ratio of C to m-xylene was 3:2. C60 nano/microcrystals could be said to be important nano components of integrated devices in electronics.
