Abstract

The phenomena exhibited by gases adsorbed on fullerenes are both unusual and diverse, given the wide variety of adsorption geometries, including buckyballs, nanotubes, nanohorns and assemblies of these constituents. As a result of this diversity, many distinct kinds of adsorption behavior are possible. In this paper, we focus on one aspect of this general problem, which has received little attention: weak interactions play an unusually important role, especially for phase transitions. This factor represents a new ingredient in the fundamental science of this problem. Among other things, it provides a way to learn about these interactions.
