Description

FULLERENE C60 – SOL5060

CAS: 99685-96-8

Fullerenes C60 is the primary starting material for the synthesis of organic semiconductors used in solar cells, perovskites, and bio/pharma applications.

High purity Fullerene-C60 (carbon 60, or C60, fullerenes) for use in thermal evaporation systems as either electron acceptors, n-type semiconductors, or interface layers.

We do offer regular grades which may contain traces of volatiles (solvents) as 99.50% – 99.90%. High-purity solvent-free C60 is also offered as 99.50%+ to 99.99%+ grades, specially formulated for biological-oriented R&D and processes demanding ultra-pure fullerenes.

Our C60 fullerene is packed and shipped into high-quality glass amber vials under nitrogen.

 

Choose between:

REGULAR GRADES:

Grade: 99.50% (SOL5060A) – Regular grade with some residual solvent, 0.1 – 0.5% – High Purity grade for synthesis

Grade: 99.90% (SOL5060Z) – Regular grade with some residual solvent, 0.1 – 0.5% – High Purity grade for synthesis

SOLVENT FREE GRADES:

Grade: 99.50% (SOL5060X) – Solvent-free* – High Purity grade for synthesis.

Grade: 99.90% (SOL5060W) – Solvent-free* –  logo ezesol 200 High Purity grade for synthesis.

Grade: 99.95% (SOL5060Y) – Solvent-free*eZeSol Very High Purity grade for synthesis, Standards and Bio-Pharma R&D.

Grade: 99.99% (SOL5060YY) – Solvent-free*eZeSol Ultra High Purity grade for synthesis, Standards and Bio-Pharma R&D.

eZeSol™ *products:

These C60 products are going through further processes in order to be highly soluble in organic solvents, oils and other related medias.

Time to dissolve/disperse in (provided as a guideline only):

Toluene: Few seconds to few minutes (max 3 g/L)

o-DCB: Few seconds to few minutes (max 24 g/L)

Olive oil: 3-5 days (to 0.8-1g/L, vs 2 weeks for most common C60 powder)

*Solvents and volatiles are removed by subjecting the C60 to a controlled heat-cool process under dynamic inert medical nitrogen in order to suppress oxidation and preserve its pristine nature.
