C60 1,1,2,2-tetra­chloro­ethyl­ene tetra­solvate

By C. Arunkumar, P. Bhyrappa and B. Varghese


In the title complex, C60·4C2Cl4, the C60 mol­ecule is located on an inversion centre and there are two tetra­chloro­ethyl­ene (TCE) mol­ecules in the asymmetric unit. Both TCE mol­ecules show positional disorder, with occupancy ratios of 0.75:0.25 and 0.56:0.44. Four fullerene C atoms form short contacts [3.208 (17) and 3.223 (17) Å] with the centres of the TCE double bonds, indicating that C60–solvent inter­actions are largely π–π in nature
