Radioactive endohedral [Formula presented] can be detected using radiochemical and radiochromatographic techniques in the final solvent. Such a [Formula presented] atom can penetrate into the [Formula presented] cage to produce [Formula presented] by a recoil process of the nuclear reactions. An ab initio molecular dynamics simulation was carried out to demonstrate that a direct insertion process is really possible. Both the experimental and the theoretical results were consistent with each other.
