ABSTRACT
The fullerene, a series of all-carbon forming closed molecules, is a new material discovered in 1985. After a further discovery of a simple practical and effective production method in 1990 for synthesis of metallofullerenes, investigation on their chemical and physical properties have soon become active. What kinds of elements can be encapsulated into the carbon cages to form chemically stable species of fullerene compound in air is of particular interest. Formation of metallofullerenes stable in air has been reported so far for elements in groups 2, 3, 4, 5 and lanthanoides. But for elements in actinoides, there were reports but all failed to observe, or probably failed to produce a detectable quantity of actinide metallofullerenes. In this context, we have improved and established a method for synthesizing the metallofullerenes with actinide elements and studied some of their species and properties. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
