The binary systems of C60with α-methyl- and α-chloronaphthalene have been studied by means of differential scanning calorimetry. C60was found to form the molecular complex of the van der Waals type with α-methylnaphthalene which melts incongruently below the boiling point of the solvent at temperature 382.7±3.0 K. The enthalpy of the desolvation reaction is 14.1±0.5 kJ mol-1of C60. The molar ratio of fullerene to solvent in the solvate is 1:1.5. In the system C60-α-chloronaphthalene a two-stage incongruent melting process has been observed at temperatures 314.1±4.6 K and 375.7±7.4 K with the enthalpies 8.1±2.6 kJ mol-1and 11.6±1.0 kJ mol-1, respectively. The composition of the most solvated phase equilibrated with the saturated solution at room temperature and below the first of the incongruent melting transitions was determined as 1:1.5. Based on the results obtained the thermodynamic characteristics of the incongruent melting reactions have been revealed and influence of solvate formation on solubility of C60has been discussed.
