Abstract


B3LYP/6-31G* computations predict the relative energies and stabilities of the endohedral (XΓH) and exohedral (XCH) dodecahedrane complexes (X = H, H, N, P, C, Si, O, S). H does not bind endohedrally but bridges a C-C bond exohedrally; the proton affinity is 185.3 kcal/mol. Except for O, all other guest species (H, N, P, C, Si, S) are minima at the cage center. The H-atom inclusion energy is similar to that of helium (36.3 vs 38.0 kcal/mol), whereas the other endohedral complexes have much higher inclusion energies (125-305 kcal/mol). In all cases, the endohedral complexes are energetically less favorable than their exohedral isomers. CH has a cage-ruptured structure, whereas N, P, and their isoelectronic analogues have exohedral structures and bind as doublet states to broken cage C-C bonds. Endohedral H, N, C, O, and S preserve their unencapsulated ground states, whereas P and Si interact strongly with the cage and lose their atomic ground-state character.
