AbstractFullerenes C60 and C70, generated by combustion, have been shown previously to be produced in controlled laminar flames accompanied by other compounds having fullerene-like characteristics. Analysis of these additional compounds by hith-performance liquid chromatography, coupled on-line with mass spectrometry has identified them as isomers of the C60 and C70 fullerenes. The newly observed isomers have characteristic UV spectra and are thermally unstable, undergoing conversion to the more stable fullerenes with a half-life of about 1 h in boiling toluene (111°C). Isomers of C60 and C70 fullerenes previously have been studied theoretically, but not observed experimentally. The flame-generated material also contains C60O and C70O compounds, as well as C76 and higher carbon clusters.
