Abstract

The yield of Sc(3)N@C(80) metallofullerene and fullerene extract is dramatically increased via filling cored graphite rods with copper and Sc(2)O(3) only; when compared to 100% Sc(2)O(3) packed rods, improvements of factors of similar to 3 and similar to 5 have been achieved for Sc(3)N@C(80) and fullerene extract produced, respectively, with the weight percent of Cu added to the rod affecting the type and amount of fullerene produced.
