Abstract

Enthusiasm is generated for the newly discovered oxometallic clusters (OMFs) and metallic nitride fullerenes (MNFs). Excitement is due to their interesting chemical and physical properties. The OMF metallofullerenes consist of a ScxOy cluster (x = 2, 4; y=1,3,4) encapsulated within a fullerene cage (e.g., Sc2O@C82, Sc4O2@C80, Sc4O3@C80). With requests for MNF and OMF samples increasing, advances in the synthesis and purification are needed. In this presentation, we will discuss new separation strategies for isolating MNFs and OMFs. We will discuss, in particular, purification schemes which minimize the use of HPLC.
