On the evaporation kinetics of [60] fullerene in aromatic organic solvents

Author affiliations

Abstract

We investigate the effect of C60 fullerene nanospheres on the evaporation kinetics of a number of aromatic solvents with different levels of molecular association, namely, benzene, toluene, and chlorobenzene. The dependence of the evaporation rate on the fullerene concentration is not monotonic but rather exhibits maxima and minima. The results strongly support the notion of molecular structuring within the liquid solvent controlled by the nature of the fullerene/solvent interaction and the level of molecular association within the solvent itself.
