Structure of metal clusters and of the C60 matrix in Au/C60 and Cu/C60 nanosystems was investigated by X-ray diffraction. Results support a charge-transfer-type interaction at the metal-C60 interface, which affects the size distribution of metal clusters, favouring interstitial location of metal ions in the fullerite lattice.
