Introduction
Fullerenes are accepted as the fourth for of solid carbon after amorphous, graphite and diamond forms. Fullerene chemistry has provided a new dimension of aromatic and a new platform for discussion of mathematical techniques pertinent to large cages. They are basically, large carbon cage molecules. These fullerenes have attracted great interest a large number of physical and chemical properties. These properties of nanostructures strongly depend on this size, shape and chemical compositions. This property leads to very interesting and recent applications in medicinal chemistry, material science and nanotechnology. Functionalization, intercalation and doping by the addition of electron acceptors or donors are the way of modifying the properties of these nanostructures. Among these nanostructures carbon based nanomaterials such as nanotubes, nanocages, nanoshells,

The electronic, vibrational properties have been used to understand the activity of the doped fullerene with metal to from the biochemical attraction with amino acids. It was found that binding of amino acids to doped fullerene generated a most stable complex through metal ion – nitrogen atoms. A DFT calculation shows that the functionalization of amino acid leads to the specific antibody interaction of
