Crystals of orthorhombic symmetry obtained on evaporation of CS2 solutions of C60 contain solvent molecules rather than representing a new lower density form of pure C60. Introduction of I2 into the CS2 solutions yields containing solid solutions, i.e. C60·1.5 (CS2, I2). Both types of crystals degrade rapidly in X-ray radiation.
