We demonstrate ultrarapid interfacial formation of one-dimensional (1D) single-crystalline fullerene C60 nanorods at room temperature in 5 s. The nanorods of ∼ 11 µm in length and ∼ 215 nm in diameter are developed in a hexagonal close-pack crystal structure, contrary to the cubic crystal structure of pristine C60. Vibrational and electronic spectroscopy provide strong evidence that the nanorods are a van der Waals solid, as evidenced from the preservation of the electronic structure of the C60 molecules within the rods. Steady state optical spectroscopy reveals a dominance of charge transfer excitonic transitions in the nanorods. A significant enhancement of photogenerated charge carriers is observed in the nanorods in comparison to pristine C60, revealing the effect of shape on the photovoltaic properties. Due to their ultrarapid, large-scale, room-temperature synthesis with single-crystalline structure and excellent optoelectronic properties, the nanorods are expected to be promising for photosensitive devices applications.
