 Using highly pure graphite rod and B4C/graphite composite rod as electrods, some macroscopic amounts of boron-doped fullerenes, such as C60-nBn and C70-nBn (n=1,2,3) are synthesized by DC arc burning method and extracted by o-xylene from the soots under nitrogen for the first time. The boron-doped fullerenes are characterized by FDMS.
