    Abstract

    ScnC74 (n=1, 2) and Sc2C84 metallofullerenes (MF), adsorbed on the Si (100) 2×1 surface were studied by scanning tunneling microscopy. The MF molecule images were spherical and randomly distributed, similar to those of C60, C70 and C84, but were slightly larger than those of the pristine fullerenes. These results suggest that the Sc atoms were trapped inside fullerenes cages, with a significant charge transfer from the metal atom.
