AbstractWe report the first detection of buckminsterfullerene (C 60) in a protoplanetary nebula. The vibrational transitions of C 60 at 7.0, 17.4, and 18.9μm are detected in the Spitzer/Infrared Spectrograph spectrum of IRAS 01005+7910. This detection suggests that fullerenes are formed shortly after the asymptotic giant branch but before the planetary nebulae stage. A comparison with the observations of C 60 in other sources is made and the implication for circumstellar chemistry is discussed. © 2011. The American Astronomical Society. All rights reserved.

Funding Information:

We are grateful to Peter Bernath for helpful discussions. We also thank Kris Sellgren, Jan Cami, and Jeronimo Bernard-Salas for providing the IRS spectra of NGC 7023 and Tc 1 from the their papers (Sellgren et al. 2010 and Cami et al. 2010). This work is based on observations made with the Spitzer Space Telescope, which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under a contract with NASA. This work was supported by a grant to S. K. from the Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, China (project number HKU7020/08P) and a grant to Y.Z. from the Seed Funding Program for Basic Research in Hong Kong University (200909159007).
