Production of Ge Heterofullerenes by Arc-Discharge Technique
Germanium containing heterofullerenes are produced by arc-discharge technique under ~100 torr He atmosphere and were extracted from the soot using CS2. Production and extraction procedures are detailed. FTIR spectrum of extract was presented. The mass distribution of the extract analyzed by FAB mass spectrum showed the stability of heterofullerene structures.
