This article reports computations for Al@C82, Sc@C82, Y@C82, and La@C82 based on encapsulation into the IPR (isolated pentagon rule) C2v C82 cage. Their structural and bonding features are also used for evaluations of the relative production yields, employing the encapsulation Gibbs-energy terms and saturated metal pressures. The results can be well related to the ionization potentials of the free metal atoms and thus also rationalized.
