Problem 142
Textbook Question

# The alkali metal fulleride superconductors M3C60 have a cubic closest-packed (face-centered cubic) arrangement of nearly spherical C60 3- anions with M+ cations in the holes between the larger C603- ions. The holes are of two types: octahedral holes, which are surrounded octahedrally by six C603- ions; and tetrahedral holes, which are surrounded tetrahedrally by four C603- ions. (c) Specify fractional coordinates for all the octahedral and tetrahedral holes. (Fractional coordinates are fractions of the unit cell edge lengths. For example, a hole at the center of the cell has fractional coordinates 12, 12, 12.)
