Bowl-shaped phosphine molecules, whose bowl geometry can be controlled by a variation of the axial substituent, were synthesized, and used as host molecules to encapsulate C60. Host molecules with relatively shallow bowls formed a chiral capsule, while hosts with deeper bowls formed an achiral pseudo-cage.
