Brief Communications


The interaction of crystalline fullerence C60 with highly pure hydrogen, which was evolved from hydrides of intermetallic compounds of rear-earth metals and nickel, was studied. Crystalline fullerene hydrides containing from 10 to 30 hydrogen atoms per fullerene molecule were synthesized (1.0–2.5 MPa and 300–673 K). Crystalline hydrides release hydrogen at 800 K with retention of the structure of the fullerene molecule.
