Title: Small-angle X-ray scattering study of the structure of powder fullerene C{sub 60} and fullerene soot

Abstract

Powder samples of fullerene C{sub 60} and fullerene soot have been studied by the small-angle X-ray scattering method. The radii of gyration of scattering elements have been determined by constructing small-angle diffraction patterns in Guinier coordinates. The data obtained agree well with the results of wide-angle X-ray scattering study, the available data on the structure of the powder fullerene C{sub 60} prepared by the Huffman-Kraetschmer technique, and the structure of the C{sub 60} molecules. Conglomerates of two C{sub 60} molecules, along with crystallites {approx}20 nm in size that are distributed in an amorphous matrix, are present in fullerene powders. Fullerene soot contains C{sub 60} crystallites 20-25 nm in size and graphite crystallites {approx}2-3 nm in size that are distributed in an amorphous matrix.
