Current status and future developments of endohedral metallofullerenes.
This critical review provides a balanced but not an exhaustive summary regarding almost all aspects of EMFs, including the history, the classification, current progress in the synthesis, extraction, isolation, and characterization, as well as their physiochemical properties and applications in fields such as electronics, photovoltaics, biomedicine, and materials science.

An Improbable Monometallic Cluster Entrapped in a Popular Fullerene Cage: YCN@Cs(6)-C82
The unprecedented monometallic clusterfullerene structure unveiled by YCN@Cs(6)-C82 opens up a new avenue for stabilizing a cluster by a single metal cation within a carbon cage, and will surely stimulate further studies on the stability and formation mechanism of EMFs. Expand
Size-Controlled in situ Synthesis of Metal Nanoparticles on Dendrimer-Modified Carbon Nanotubes
Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were covalently modified with fourth-generation NH2-terminated poly(amido amine) (G4-PAMAM) dendrimers, named CNT/DEN. The covalent linkages between CNT andExpand
Regioselective benzyl radical addition to an open-shell cluster metallofullerene. Crystallographic studies of cocrystallized Sc3C2@Ih-C80 and its singly bonded derivative.
The endohedral fullerene once erroneously identified as Sc3@C82 was recently shown to be Sc3C2@Ih-C80, the first example of an open-shell cluster metallofullerene. We herein report that benzylExpand
Dendrimer-Mediated Synthesis of Water-Dispersible Carbon-Nanotube-Supported Oxide Nanoparticles
SiO2 and TiO2 nanoparticles of 35−45 nm size were synthesized by hydrolysis of Si and Ti precursors, respectively, in aqueous dispersions of multiwalled carbon nanotubes, which were surface-modifiedExpand
Silver nanoclusters: synthesis, structures and photoluminescence
Metal nanoclusters (NCs) consist of tens to hundreds of metal atoms with a diameter of <2 nm, and have attracted significant attention due to their unique molecule-like properties, such asExpand
Synthesis and photophysical properties of a Sc3N@C80 -corrole electron donor-acceptor conjugate.
This study has performed a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of a corrole-based precursor with Sc3 N@C80 to regioselectively form a [5,6]-adduct, and the successful attachment of the corrole moiety was confirmed by mass spectrometry. Expand
High-nuclearity silver(I) chalcogenide clusters: A novel class of supramolecular assembly
Abstract The high-nuclearity silver(I) clusters, a novel class of supramolecular assembly of silver(I) complexes, were usually prepared by incorporating silver ions with various ligands. Notably, aExpand
Chemistry of endohedral metallofullerenes: the role of metals.
A systematic review of the important chemical transformations of EMFs reported to date, including disilylation, 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition with ylides, cyclopropanation with carbenes and carbanions, cycloadDition with dienes and benzyne, radical reactions, and other miscellaneous reactions, in addition to noncovalent interactions such as supramolecular complexation.
