C60[Cu26Cl26L213(CH3CN)9] (L = H2O) represents a first example of a complete encapsulation of C60 itself by an inorganic fullerene-like system via molecular recognition of the five- and sixfold-symmetric structural motif of C60. The product exhibits an inorganic cover consisting of 99 inorganic core atoms from pentaphosphaferrocene and Cu(I) chloride building blocks. This is the first instance of a hollow structure that completely encapsulates C60. The overall spherical molecule possesses an outer diameter of 2.3 nm and shows a remarkable electronic interaction between C60 and the encapsulating giant molecule.
