Abstract

original image

The encapsulation of metal clusters in endohedral metallofullerenes takes place in cages that, in most cases, are far from being the most stable isomer among the corresponding hollow fullerenes. In their Communication on page 9275 ff., M. Solà, J. M. Luis et al. demonstrate that, in contrast to previous proposals, their results indicate that it is the maximum aromaticity criterion that determines the most suitable hosting cages.
