Title: Small-angle neutron scattering data on C{sub 60} clusters in weakly polar solutions of fullerenes

Abstract

Solutions of fullerence C{sub 60} in carbon disulfide CS{sub 2} have been investigated by small-angle neutron scattering. Combination of solubility, contrast, and incoherent scattering make it possible to measure and analyze the relatively small scattering cross section of this system. Along with single fullerene molecules, a small amount of large fullerene clusters (more than 100 A in size) is found in these solutions. The formation of these clusters depends on the procedure of solution preparation. The size distribution functions of clusters are compared with the results of the phenomenological cluster model of fullerene solubility.
