Research from Toyo University Reveals New Findings on Fullerenes

June 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Fullerenes is now available. According to news originating from Kawagoe, Japan, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "In this paper, we discuss the results of our study of the synthesis of endohedral iron-fullerenes. A low energy Fe(+) ion beam was irradiated to C60 thin film by using a deceleration system."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Toyo University, "Fe(+)-irradiated C60 thin film was analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography and laser desorption/ ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. We investigated the performance of the deceleration system for using a Fe(+) beam with low energy."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In addition, we attempted to isolate the synthesized material from a Fe(+)-irradiated C60 thin film by high performance liquid chromatography."
