Abstract Investigations on orientation of floating layers of triple system fullerene C60 – disubstituted dibenzo-24-crown-8 – terbium complex by magnetic field and receiving of biaxial Langmuir-Blodgett films on their base were carried out. It was shown that the films have regular multilayered structure, formed by crown-ether – fullerene complexes, and possess anisotropy of planar electric conductivity, which is provided by macroscopic orientation of fullerene-fullerene chain contacts in each separate layer.
Keywords: fullerenes, crown-ethers, Langmuir-Blodgett films, effect of Freedericks, anisotropy of conductivity.
