Access to a chiral C82 cage: Encaging a divalent samarium atom has provided access to an unexplored chiral cage of C2(5)-C82 that has never been reported for trivalent M@C82 or empty fullerenes. Inside this cage, a wandering Sm atom has been identified using crystallographic methods. In addition, electrochemical studies of Sm@C2(5)-C82 have been performed to explore its oxidation properties (see figure).
