Selective host–guest interaction of single-walled carbon nanotubes with functionalised fullerenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Exohedrally functionalised fullerenes have been inserted in single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with the aid of supercritical carbon dioxide to form peapods; C61(COOEt)2 are encapsulated in SWNTs in high yield, whereas C61(COOH)2 aggregate via hydrogen bonding to form a supramolecular complex, which sterically hinders encapsulation and causes it to adhere to the exterior surface of the SWNTs.
