Dipole moments of C60 fullerene in benzene, toluene and orthoxylene

Physics of molecules

The determination of dipole moments of C60 fullerene has been carried out in benzene, toluene and ortoxylene solutionsunder infinite dilution. It was found that dipole moments are 1.0 D, 1.8 D and 2.27 D in toluene, benzene and ortoxylene, respectively.

It means that there are isolated C60 molecules in toluene solution but associated clusters with constant stoichiometry in benzene and ortoxylene solutions.
