Available online at Chemical Physics Letters 447 (2007) 316–319 He intercalated C60 solid under high pressure Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering, Nagoya Institute of Technology, Gokiso-cho, Received 26 July 2007; in final form 19 September 2007 In situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction measurement of solid C60 under high pressure up to about 26 GPa was performed using He gas as pressure transmitting medium. This is the first study to precisely investigate the structural property of the He intercalated C60 underhigh pressure in a few tens GPa range. It was found that the He intercalated C60 solid is much less compressible than the pure C60 solid.
The bulk modulus of the He intercalated C60 solid is determined to be B0 = 35.1 (6.0) GPa. The effect of hydrostaticity on the deforma-tions of unit cell and C60 molecule is also discussed.

Schir-ber et al. and Pintschovius et al. pointed out the penetration of He and Ne gases into the C60 lattice. They also investigated the effect of the penetration on the high pressure behavior of the solid C60. However, their experi- ments are limited to the low pressure range below 1 GPa and the lattice volume change due to the intercalation is quite small. Therefore, the structural property of the noble still not known. In this study, we report the results of the in situ synchrotron XRD measurements of solid C60 under high pressure up to about 26 GPa using He gas as the pres- The in situ XRD measurements of fcc–C60 (>99.99%) under high pressure were performed using a diamond anvil cell at the beam line BL-10XU of SPring-8. Two kinds ofexperiments were carried out: one used He gas as the pres-sure transmitting medium and the other used a 4:1 mixtureof methanol and ethanol. For convenience, the former and the latter experiments are abbreviated Exp-He and Exp- M + E, respectively. The pressure was determined by the ruby fluorescence method. The XRD patterns were observed using an imaging plate detector.

Comparing a and b, no extra diffraction peak can be observed by the penetration of Hegas and all the diffraction lines can be indexed by cubic lat- tice. Since the alcohols mixture of methanol:ethanol = 4:1 used in Exp-M + E (does not freeze up to about 10 GPa, it has been reported to be possible to perform a hydrostatic pressure experiment up to its solidification pressure using this mixture It was also observed in Fig. 1.

By applying the sameanalysis method as in the case of Exp-M + E, the B0 and B0 values of the He intercalated C60 solid are determined to be35.1 (6.0) GPa and 4.1 (1.1), respectively.
The main reason why the 2 0 0 diffraction peak of Exp- M + E appeared at a lower pressure than that of Exp-Heis probably due to the difference in the lattice compressibil-ity mentioned above. If the pressure deformation of the C60 molecule differs in Exp-M + E and Exp-He, it would be an another possible explanation for the anomaly of the 2 0 0peak. The deformation can be analyzed using the relativediffraction intensities. In , the relative intensities ofthe 2 0 0 peak in the two experiments to the 1 1 1 and 2 2 0diffraction peak intensities are plotted as a function of the lattice constant a. The solid curves in are the curves calculated using the following conditions: the C60 molecular scattering factor can be approximated by the Fig. 2. FWHM of 2 2 0 peaks as a function of pressure.

Although the relative intensities I2 0 0/I1 1 1 and I2 0 0/I2 2 0 significantly differ in Exp-He and Exp-M + E as a functionof the pressure and b), those plotted as a function of a do not show any remarkable difference at least in the ˚ .
