  • FULLERENES have internal cavities large enough to encapsulate atoms1,2. Recently, noble-gas atoms were introduced into about one in a million fullerene molecules3. It is now possible to achieve far greater yields of these noble-gas endohedral compounds4. Because 3He has a spin of 1/2 and is an excellent NMR nucleus5,6, it can be used as a probe for the magnetic shielding environment inside the fullerene cavity. This environment should reflect possible ring currents and hence the aromaticity in… CONTINUE READING
