Abstract

Fullerene clusters in the C60/N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP)/water system have been investigated by small-angle neutron scattering. It is shown that the scattering cross section corresponding to the size range 10-100 nm depends on the water content in the mixture. Addition of water to a C 60/NMP solution in an amount exceeding 40% leads to a sharp increase in the average scattering cross section. This effect depends on the interval between the times of preparation of a C60/NMP solution and its dilution with water: the size of the clusters formed as a result of adding water increases with increasing the age of the initial solution. The reasons for this effect are discussed.
