We observed crystal structure of Na2RbC60 by X-ray diffraction and found that C60 molecules in Na2RbC60 superconductor are more orientationally disordered than the other alkali metal doped C60 superconductors such as Rb3C60. This disordering might be related to the superconducting transition temperature (Tc) of Na2RbC60, which is much lower than that expected from the reported simple relation between (Tc) and lattice constant.
