Abstract

The heat capacity of the fullerite C60 has been investigated in the temperature interval 1–120 K using an adiabatic calorimeter. The fullerite is 99.99% pure. The sample mass is equal to about 0.6 g. Analysis of the obtained results and literature data [1-3] in the temperature range 1–300 K was carried out assuming that the translational, rotational, and intramolecular degrees of freedom make additive contributions to the heat capacity of fullerite.
