Abstract

Fullerenes tend to form clusters in different solutions. In this work, a brief survey and some results in the field of investigations of the structure and kinetics of clusters growing in C60 solutions are presented. The general character of this phenomenon for fullerenes is emphasized, and the considerations of mechanisms responsible for the formation and growth of clusters are discussed. We distinguish different types of fullerene solvents by the aggregation mechanism. The kinetics of cluster growth measured via the dynamic light scattering is presented. The complicated structure of clusters in different solutions is briefly discussed.
