A computational study is carried out regarding the characteristics of a set of fullerene complexes formed by the fullerene C78 and the endohedral fullerene Sc3N@C78 with a series of hosts of different nature, including corannulene, a zinc porphyrin and a chloro boron subphthalocyanine. The carbon cage is kept similar in these two fullerenes, so comparing the results obtained for their complexes will reveal the role of the endohedral cluster on modifying the characteristics of the fullerene and how it affects to the interaction.
