Snuggling of bucky and methane: What are the preferred adsorption sites of methane on small aggregates of C60? How many methane molecules adsorb in groove sites? How many in dimple sites? We provide answers for aggregates containing up to four C60 molecules. For example, this figure shows that seven CH4 fit into the groove of the dimer, in excellent agreement with experiment. Calculated adsorption energies of 118–281 meV are in the optimal range for high-density storage of natural gas.
