Hamid Reza Barzegar, Christian Larsen, Ludvig Edman and Thomas Wågberg Solution-Based Phototransformation of C60 Nanorods: Towards Improved Electronic Devices Particle & Particle Systems Characterization 30
C60 nanorods,grown by a modified liquid–liquid interface precipitation method, are photopolymerized in solution using green laser light. The photo-exposed nanorods are shown to comprise a polymerized-C60 protective shell rendering them insoluble, but dispersable, in common hydrophobic solvents. This practical (in)solubility property in combination with a record-high electron mobility for both as-grown and photo-exposed nanorods, as measured in a field-effect transistor geometry, points out a viable path towards low-cost and large-area solution processing of functional electronic and photovoltaic devices.
