Title

The frequency factor in statistical fullerene decay

Abstract

Experiments on fullerene decay are reviewed and the frequency factor for C(2) emission is extracted. The value is also calculated theoretically. Inclusion of a number of previously disregarded degrees of freedom for the products increase the theoretical estimate for C(60) to above 10(20) s(-1), in good agreement with experimental results.
