Abstract

The formation of As and Se atom-incorporated fullerenes has been investigated by using radionuclides produced by nuclear reactions. From the trace of radioactivities of 72As, and 75Se after High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), it was found that the formation of endohedral fullerenes or heterofullerenes is possible by a recoil process following the nuclear reactions. To confirm the produced materials, ab initio molecular-dynamics simulations based on an all-electron mixed-basis approach were carried out.
