(C60) was found in the ‘paramagnetic’ phases in both the b.c.c. and f.c.c. forms. Such a low-spin state favours quantum spin fluctuation and suppresses magnetic ordering, and could be understood in terms of a geometrical distortion (either static or dynamic) of the C60 anion known as the Jahn–Teller effect, which has so far not been detected in trivalent fullerenes. Further studies of the interplay between superconductivity, magnetic ordering and structural arrangement promise to deepen our… CONTINUE READING
