The correlations between the surface tension, shear viscosity, and isothermal compressibility, are investigated for liquid C60 at extended regions of temperature and pressure. An improved equation of state [EOS] is employed, based on hard-core plus three Yukawa potential [HC3YK] which facilitates the analytically accurate series mean spherical approximation [SMSA] formalism for the free energy. The present equation of state is utilized to obtain analytical expressions for the thermodynamic functions of interest and discuss the validity of their mutual relations along the spinodal curve of C60.
