The measured room temperature magnetic susceptibility of a bulk sample of buckytubes (buckybundle) is -10.75×10-6 emu/g for the magnetic field parallel to the buckybundle axis, which is approximately 1.1 times the perpendicular value and 30 times larger than that of C60. The experimental results are discussed in terms of a graphite-like electronic structure model.
