The first regioselective functionalization of La@C(82) by two different groups has been performed. Bis-adducts of La@C(82) with Cp* and adamantylidene were synthesized by using two different routes and characterized. Spectroscopic analysis and theoretical calculations reveal that the addition position is controlled by the charge density and p-orbital axis vector value of the fullerene cage.
