Chemistry and Pharmacology
Controlled two-step nucleophilic hydroalkylations, hydroar-ylations as well as hydrostannylations of fullerene-60 (1) and fullerene-70 (2) lead to defined organodihydrofullerenes C60HR and C70HR. NMR investigations show that only one isomer of each organodihydrofullerene with Cs symmetry is formed. In all cases the addition takes place at a double bond separating two six-membered rings of the fullerene core. In this way a variety of organodihydrofullerenes also carrying functional groups have been synthesized.
