This paper deals with the extraordinary electrochemistry and the tunability of the energy levels for fulleropyrazolines, which allow their use in photovoltaics and charge-transfer systems. The team at the University of Oxford (UOX) in United Kingdom is investigating different methods of photo-controlled release for fullerene systems as part of RADDEL project to use fullerenes as removable corks for encapsulation of radioactive moieties inside carbon nanotubes. One ESR fellow recruited by UOX is working on this.
