t Investigations on molecular interactions of C60 with a variety of solvents show that its solubility is largely controlled by efficient charge transfer interactions between electron deficient C60, with suitable n-and π-donors. Organic species having a lone pair of electron on heteroatoms (n-donors) and/or π-electron cloud (π-donors) which are capable of forming charge transfer complexes with C60, are better solvents. Solvent-C60 interaction studies thus help in the rational design of solvents and has led to the discovery of several new
