UV-Vis spectroscopy and small-angle neutron scattering experiments are performed on the cluster solution of fullerene C60 in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone before and after dilution of the system with pure solvent. Some changes in the UV-Vis spectra showing solvatochromism at dilution are observed, while the neutron scattering signal does not change. The effect is discussed with respect to the relation between solvatochromism and cluster formation for fullerene solutions in nitrogen-containing solvents.
