Endohedral Fullerenes:From Fundamentals to Applications by Yang Shangfeng Et Al,Shangfeng Yang,Chun-Ru Wang

By Yang Shangfeng Et Al,Shangfeng Yang,Chun-Ru Wang

Endohedral fullerenes characterize a singular relations of carbon nanostructures, that are characterised via a strong fullerene cage with atoms, ions, or clusters trapped in its inside. because the first separation of the endohedral metallofullerene La@C82 in 1991, a wide number of endohedral buildings were remoted and their endohedral nature has been proved by way of experimental reviews. in the previous twenty years, the realm of endohedral fullerenes was once considerably enlarged by way of the clusterfullerenes and the recent carbon cages together with non-IPR (IPR=isolated pentagon rule) constructions. as a result of the cost move from the encaged species to the fullerene cage, endohedral fullerenes carry loads of interesting houses inaccessible through the empty fullerenes, and accordingly promise strength purposes in biomedicine, molecular electronics and photonics etc.

The booklet presents a accomplished evaluation of endohedral fullerenes serious about the hot advances long ago decade, together with its basics (structures), synthesis, isolation, characterization, homes, functionalization in addition to the functions, therefore representing the main up to date and large evaluate of this intriguing field.
