This work continues the studies on the non-covalent fullerene-donor interaction that were recently conducted by non-spectroscopic methods in solution. The Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique is engaged as a main experimental tool to exclude interfering solvent effects. Methods to prepare a stable low-dimensional fullerene-water system and to monitor intermolecular interactions therein are proposed. As a molecular partner of fullerene, beta-benzylnaphthalene (BN) modeling a functional pi-donor is used. No pair C-60-BN interactions were found in both C-60-BN-H2O and C-60-BN systems. Thus, a lack of molecular affinity of fullerene for typical pi-donors is stated not only in solution but in solvent-free systems as well. For this reason, none of classic non-covalent interactions can be exploited to control the state of fullerene in solid composites.
