Abstract: AbstractIn previous works, we have shown our discovery of C 60 @SWNT and first described the general mechanism of filling, which involves the vapor phase transport of C 60 molecules to openings in the SWNTs' walls. Here, we discuss the high-yield synthesis of C 60 @SWNT by refinements to our method. Yields are measured by a calibrated weight uptake technique, a methodology that is not subject to many of the potential pitfalls inherent to other techniques that have been applied. At certain processing condition…
