Inside Back Cover: Size-Selective Complexation and Extraction of Endohedral Metallofullerenes with Cycloparaphenylene (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 12/2014)
A new strategy for the nonchromatographic extraction of metallofullerenes from solutions of arc-processed raw soot is described by K. Itami, H. Shinohara et al. in their Communication on page 3102 ff. This method is based on the size-selective complexation with commercially available cycloparaphenylene (CPP). For example, Gd@C82 can be selectively extracted from a fullerene mixture by the addition of CPP.
