Abstract

The vibrational spectrum of C70 has been measured by inelastic neutron scattering at 20 K. It closely resembles the spectrum of C60 extending smoothly from 26 to 195 meV and reflecting the close bonding similarities between the two hollow carbon cages. Satisfactory agreement with a QCFF/PI model of the C70 vibrations is found.
