The adsorption and the energy barriers for diffusion on clusters of C-60 molecules are studied by means of quenched molecular dynamics simulations. The interaction among the C-60 molecules is modeled by means of the Girifalco potential. Three different clusters structures are considered: a truncated octahedron of 38 molecules, an icosahedron of 55 molecules and a truncated decahedron of 75 molecules. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science B.V.
