The amorphous fullerite C60 has been prepared by mechanical activation (grinding in a ball mill), and its interaction with iron during sintering of powders with 0–95 at % Fe has been studied. After sintering in the range 800–1200°C under a pressure of 70 MPa, the samples have nonequilibrium structures different from the structures of both annealed and quenched steels. In this case, the carbon phase, i.e., amorphous fullerite, undergoes a polyamorphous transition to amorphous graphite. It has also been shown that the interaction of amorphous fullerite with iron is weaker compared to crystalline fullerite or crystalline graphite.
