The solutions of C60 in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) and in the binary mixtures NMP/water and NMP/toluene are investigated using UV-Vis spectroscopy, small-angle neutron scattering and mass-spectroscopy. The decomposition of fullerene clusters after dilution of C60/NMP system with water and the effect of solvent polarity on fullerene aggregation in C60/NMP/toluene solutions are analyzed.
