C60(C14H10O2), an anthracene derivative of C60 was successfully synthesized yielding both polycrystalline and single crystal samples. These were investigated by x-ray diffraction methods, synchrotron radiation was utilized in powder and conventional x-ray source in single crystal studies. The molecular and crystal structure of C60(C14H10O2) was determined from single crystal measurements revealing the incorporation of two oxygen atoms into the middle benzene ring of anthracene. Parallel beam powder data fully supports the structure, however, it does not provide sufficient information for unconstrained structure refinement.
