A Fullerene confined metal particles and increasing pressure

  1. Nov 28, 2016 #1

    I would like to ask a question regarding possible change of orbital conformation of a fullerene particle filled with metal. Is there any basis to the assumption that for if you encase a metal, such as a round nanoparticle of lead cooled to minimal thermodynamical state, just so it fits inside a fullerene, and then allow the molecule to drift towards, say, more common thermodynamic environments. As it warms the lead core and the graphene encasing shift towards a new equilibrium. Is there a theoretical basis to assume that the increased thermodynamical (and electrodynamical) pressure inside the lead-drop would lead to electron orbital confirmation changes? I would assume that the lead droplet and the graphene encasing correspond to different plasmon resonant frequencies. I wonder how co-stimulating these layers would translate to their electric field strenght. Or would the two molecules assume a common orbital conformation altogether?

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
