Two-dimensional coalescence dynamics of encapsulated metallofullerenes in carbon nanotubes.

Abstract:

We report on the coalescence of a two-dimensional (2D) chain of La@C(82) metallofullerene molecules encapsulated inside a single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT). 2D packing of metallofullerenes is known to adopt a zigzag arrangement and cause elliptical distortion to the cross-section of the SWNT host. We show that after coalescence of the metallofullerenes into an inner nanotube the carbon nanotube host returns to its original circular cross-section. This is due to a relaxation of the strain cau...
