Abstract

Properties of defected nanopeapods, in which a defected C60 cage with a C1–C59 topology is encapsulated inside a (10,10) single walled carbon nanotube, have been analyzed using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. When new CC bonds are formed between the defected C60 and the nanotube, the CC network of the nanotube is perturbed near the binding site, and has butadiene and quinonoid perturbations. Such geometrical changes could play an important role in the selective functionalizations of carbon nanotubes.
