Abstract

Raman scattering is used to study the filling of single wall carbon nanotubes with C60, C59N and anthracene. It is demonstrated how reversible opening and closing of the tubes can be used to check on the success of the filling process. In the case of C59N, filling was performed from the gas phase from 1:1 mixture between C60 and C59N. Comparing the Raman spectra from the encapsulated mixture with the spectra from C60 inside the tubes reveals that most of the molecules have reacted to form either the dimer (C59N)2 or the hetero-dimer C60-C59N. Anthracene is demonstrated to enter the tubes but the molecule is subjected to a considerable geometrical change including some loss of hydrogens.
