Abstract

The chemical, spin, and thermodynamic properties of endohedral phosphorous were studied. A model for the interaction between the trapped group V atom and the fullerene cage was also discussed. It was observed that the repulsion between the group V atom's valence shell and the fullerene cage result in an exothermic binding of the atom within the cage.
