    We report, for the first time, a reasonably good calculation of Xe shielding in a fullerene. We find the [SUP129]Xe intermolecular shielding value [σ([SUP129Xe@C[SUB60])-σ(Xe atom)] = -181.58 ppm (B3LYP), in very good agreement with the value observed for [SUP129]Xe@C[SUB60] dissolved in...

    Measurements have been made of the Raman, optical absorption, and luminescence spectra of single crystals and pellets of the fullerite C[sub 70] at T=300 K and at pressures up to 12 GPa. The baric shift d?/dP and the Gr�neisen parameters of the Raman-active intramolecular phonon modes have...

    A series of fullerenes from C[sub 20] to C[sub 60] (a total of 5770) is obtained and their characterization in terms of symmetry point groups is performed for the first time. The most symmetric forms with the sixth and higher orders of automorphism groups (a total of 80) are represented in the...

    Photoluminescence, optical absorption spectra, and photoluminescence excitation spectra were measured on large (2-3 mm), very pure crystals of fullerene C[sub 60] at 5 K. It is shown that the main contribution to the photoluminescence of these crystals is from singlet and triplet excitons...

    The polymer phases of C[sub60] fullerite and of the C[sub60] fullerides form distinct crystal structures characterized by the mutual orientations of the (C[sub60])n chains. The direct C[sub60]-C[sub60] interactions between C[sub60] units on neighboring chains are described by phenomenological...

    Photoinduced charge transfer between a conjugated polymer and C60 and the related processes were investigated in dilute solutions. The substantial fluorescence quenching is correlated with the efficient exciton diffusion within the polymer chains, according to which a sphere-of-action mechanism...

    This paper reports on a comparative study of the solid-state fluorination of the cubic and hexagonal fullerene C[sub 60] modifications by crystalline manganese trifluoride. It is shown that the variation of the fullerene crystal structure does not noticeably affect the composition of the...

    The dynamic characteristics of liquid crystal (LC) structures containing fullerenes C[sub 60] and C[sub 70] were studied, and the effect of fullerenes on the reorientation capacity of liquid crystal molecules was assessed. It is established that fullerenes C[sub 60] and C[sub 70] influence the...

    Low-frequency (3-120 cm[sup -1]) Raman scattering in the orientationally disordered phase and the photopolymerized state of fullerite was investigated. Experimental data suggest that, by analogy with scattering in disordered media (glasses), the low-frequency spectra can be described in terms of...
