Abstract

Since fullerenes are hollow clusters, it was expected that it should be possible to trap atoms or small molecules inside these nanocages for different applications from storage of certain gases to molecular electronics. Endofullerenes are important species among the family of fullerenes, because of their special electric properties. The recent experimental promising report on the successful synthesis of H2 inside C60 by Murata et al., has brought the hydrogen fullerene systems into attention both theoretically and experimentally. The investigations on the encapsulation of hydrogen inside fullerene have mainly focused on two general aspects of the phenomenon: some groups have been trying to find the maximum amount of hydrogen that could be accommodated inside a fullerene. These series of studies are of special importance when one is interested in the possibility of utilizing fullerenes as hydrogen storage media. On the other hand, the dynamical and structural characteristics of hydrogen confined inside fullerene and also its influence on the electronic properties of the host fullerene are the concerns which need more evaluation.
