Spherical fractal aggregates of similar to 10 mu m were formed from a pi-electronic amphiphile, C-60-didodecyloxybenzene dyad when extracted from THF into water, necessitating a critical dielectric constant epsilon >= 30 in binary THF-water mixtures. Molecular dynamics simulations revealed the unit cluster to such a form involves an aggregation number similar to 90 with predominant soft associative molecular interactions which corroborated the octadecahedral model proposed for the cluster growth.
