Quantum chemical calculations, x-ray structural analysis and thermodynamic stability considerations are presented for the dimer phase of AC60. The relative stability of dimer and polymer phases was evaluated from thermodynamic data and critically compared to the results of quantum chemical calculations. The AM1 optimized geometry results in a high quality of Rietveld but the spatial distribution of excess charge of the dimer anion has no significant effect on the structural refinement.
