Organised by Professor Malcolm Levitt FRS, Professor Tony Horsewill, Professor Nick Turro and Professor Yas Murata

Synthetic chemists have generated pure samples in which fullerene (C60) cages encapsulate small molecules. The cages act as nanometre-size laboratories, within which a variety of physical and spectroscopic experiments may be performed. This meeting will bring together expert researchers on the synthesis, spectroscopy, physical properties, and applications of small-molecule endofullerenes.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers are available below.  Audio recordings are freely available and the programme can be downloaded here.  Papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
