Endohedral fullerenes—carbon cages with one or more heteroatoms incarcerated within them—are one of the most exotic classes of molecules. They possess a wealth of fascinating functional properties, including magnetism and photoactivity. While the properties of individual endohedral fullerene molecules are remarkable, the full functional potential of many of these species will likely be realized in systems where two or more of these molecules are connected. One prominent example is the… CONTINUE READING
