Abstract

The endohedral natures of the metallofullerenes Y@C82 and Sc2@C84 are described based on synchrotron radiation powder diffraction experiments. For structural analysis, a combination of the maximum-entropy method (MEM) and Rietveld refinement was employed to analyse the complicated powder pattern. The obtained MEM charge densities show a clear distinction of the endohedral natures of the mono- and dimetallofullerenes.
