The effect of column temperature, especially at low temperatures, on the separation of fullerenes on monomeric and polymeric octadecyl silica (ODS) bonded phases has been studied. Decreasing the column temperature induces an increase in selectivity. The best temperature for the separation of fullerenes was determined for both types of ODS phase with n-hexane eluent. The selectivity for higher fullerenes on monomeric phases becomes similar to that on polymeric phases to low temperature. It has been found that as the carbon content of monomeric phases is increased, the selectivity also becomes similar to polymeric phases.
