A novel crystalline compound has been made by combining the two elements, carbon and phosphorus, that form isolated cage allotropes. The material, C60(P4)2, which consists of disordered tetrahedral P4 molecules intercalated in a hexagonal C60 crystal lattice has been prepared by both gas-solid reaction and co-precipitation from benzene solution.
