The influence of CO sorption at pressure P = = 30 atm in temperature range 150–600 °С on fullerite C60 structural and thermodynamical properties researched by powder x-ray diffraction methods. Sorption kinetics investigated by construction of C60 lattice parameter dependences of CO molecules sorption time. At temperature Т > 300 °С CO molecules dissociation detected, which accompanied by carbonic powder precipitation and chemical interaction of atomic oxygen with C60 molecules, with CO and, probably, with carbonic condensate. These processes have a strong influence on fullerite’s C60 structural characteristics, that leads, particularly, to nonmonotonic lattice parameter and volume of matrix dependences from the impurity sorption temperature. At the physical sorption area a solid solutions concentrations established for С60(СО)х poly- and monoсrystalline samples at two sorption regimes (150 and 250 °С). The character of СО molecules influence on lattice parameter and orientational transition temperature of fullerite С60 defined to be linear.
