Abstract / Description:We have successfully synthesized single-wall carbon nanotubes encapsulating specified fullerenes (peapods) in high yield using a sublimation method. Side and section images by HRTEM indicate that almost all nanotubes are filled with high-density fullerene chains. We measured Raman spectra to estimate macroscopic yield. The observed Raman intensity of C70 molecules in the C70-peapods is 1/10 of that in C70 film, which indicates a filling rate of C70 to be higher than 26 %. In the case of C60-peapods, Raman spectrum has changed rapidly by laser irradiation. Since the final spectrum at room temperature is similar to that of the orthorhombic polymer phase, a formation of one-dimensional photopolymers inside SWNTs is suggested.
