    Abstract

    (Figure Presented) A 4.6 nm-sized coordination sphere confines 24 pendant coronene molecules at its core. The confined coronene molecules are fluid, forming a liquid "coronene nanodroplet" that could never exist in bulk. C60 dissolves in this nano solvent with a high local concentration.
