The exohedrally functionalized derivative of endohedral metallofullerene, Ce2@C80(Mes2SiCH2SiMes2), was successfully synthesized and fully characterized. X-ray crystallographic and NMR spectroscopic analyses reveal that the free random motion of two metal atoms in Ce2@C80 is controlled inside the cage by exohedral chemical functionalization.
