Abstract

A method has been developed for the efficient production of carrier-free radionuclides containing endohedral fullerenes by using the implantation of atoms from outside the cage into the cage by nuclear recoil after neutron capture. The method was based on the irradiation of the noble-gas containing fullerenes in a nuclear reactor, dissolving the activated sample in an adequate organic solvent and the removing any free radioactive noble gas from the solution by purging it with inactive argon gas. This method can be extended to the production of many other radionuclide-containing endohedral fullerenes by using not only (n,γ) but also other nuclear reactions.
