The binary systems fluorofullerene - aliphatic hydrocarbon with normal structure were studied. The fluorofullerenes C60F46 and C60F48 were found to form molecular solvates with n-pentane, n-hexane, n-heptane, n-nonane, n-decane and n-undecane. Thermal gravimetry was used to estimate the mole composition of the solvates, differential scanning calorimetry - the dynamics of their decomposition and X-ray powder diffraction - the crystal structure of the solvates. The solubility of C60F48 in alkanes at room temperature was determined and dependence of solubility upon properties of solvates was shown.
