Synthesis and chemistry of endohedral fullerenes

Abstract:

Endohedral fullerenes are remarkable molecules that offer a unique paradigm in the molecular world: the trapping of atom(s) or clusters in a 3-dimensional, almost perfectly symmetrical structure. The electron deficient nature of the fullerene surface makes it amenable to a range of chemical reactions. Hence the fullerene can obtain functionality and become a building block of larger molecular structures. Careful engineering of the endohedral species and of the exohedral adduct can modify the ...
