Understanding the Reactivity of Ion-Encapsulated Fullerenes

Understanding the Reactivity of Ion-Encapsulated Fullerenes
Miquel Solà, Yago García-Rodeja, F. Matthias Bickelhaupt, Israel Fernández
Ion-encapsulated fullerenes constitute a new family of endohedral fullerenes having potential applications in material science. Despite that, their reactivity is so far poorly understood. By means of the activation strain model of reactivity in combination with quantitative molecular orbital theory, the influence of the encapsulated ion on the exohedral reactivity of the C60-fullerene cage is analyzed in detail. More information can be found in the Full Paper by I. Fernández et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201701506).
