Title: Synthesis and radiation resistance of fullerenes and fullerene derivatives

Abstract

The parameters of an electric-arc facility for the synthesis of fullerenes and endohedral metallofullerenes are optimized. The resistance of C{sub 60} and C{sub 70} fullerenes and C{sub 60}(OH){sub 30} and C{sub 70}(OH){sub 30} fullerenols against neutron irradiation is studied. It is established that the radiation resistance of the fullerenes is higher than that of the fullerenols, but the radiation resistance of the Gd@C{sub 2n} endometallofullerenes is lower than that of the corresponding Gd@C{sub 2n}(OH){sub 38} fullerenols. The radiation resistance of mixtures of Me@C{sub 2n}(OH){sub 38} (Me = Gd, Tb, Sc, Fe, and Pr) endometallofullerenes with C{sub 60}(OH){sub 30} is determined. The factors affecting the radiation resistance of the fullerenes and fullerenols are discussed.
