The water-solubilization of metallofullerenes is important for their potential applications, but their formation processes are still not clear, and the formation yield is uncontrollable. In this paper, we quantitatively studied the water-solubilizing process of Gd@C82 with hydroxylation reaction using ICP-MASS techniques. For the first time, it was found that the formation yield of the multihydroxylated Gd@C82 is declined quickly with the break up of carbon cage of Gd@C82 in the hydroxylated processes. The observation revealed a way to control the hydroxylation processes and increase the formation yield.
