The role of an asymmetric nitride cluster on a fullerene cage: the non-IPR endohedral DySc2N@C76

, : The role of an asymmetric nitride cluster on a fullerene cage: the non-IPR endohedral DySc2N@C76. Journal of Physical Chemistry. B 111(49): 13659-13663

The first non-IPR C(76) cage based on a mixed metal nitride cluster, DySc(2)N@C(76), was successfully synthesized and isolated. DySc(2)N@C(76) is a stable fullerene with a small band gap of 0.96 eV. According to the FTIR spectroscopic study in combination with extensive DFT calculations, the cage structure of DySc(2)N@C(76) has been assigned to the non-IPR C(s): 17490-I isomer having two pairs of the adjacent pentagons. DySc(2)N@C(76)provides the first example of stabilization of the non-IPR C(76) cage by encapsulation of an asymmetric DySc(2)N mixed cluster, revealing the role of the cluster structure on the stability of the fullerene cage. As the asymmetric DySc(2)N cluster has a more suitable geometry for the inner space of the C(76) cage compared to that of the homogeneous clusters like Sc(3)N or Dy(3)N, the highest yield for C(76)-based cluster fullerenes with the Dy(x)Sc(3)-(x)N mixed nitride cluster is achieved for the DySc(2)N@C(76)
