Size effect of endohedral cluster on fullerene cage: Preparation and structural studies of Y3N@C78-C2

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new metallofullerene Y3N@C78-C2 was synthesized and characterized. It was shown that Y3N@C78 has an unconventional C78-C2 cage with two pairs of fused pentagons closely bonded with two yttrium atoms. DFT calculations showed that the size of the ionic radii of the metals forming the caged cluster plays an important role in the non-isolated-pentagon-rule-feature of the C78 cage.
