Photochemical Addition of Ethers to C60: Synthesis of the Simplest [60]Fullerene-Crown Ether Conjugates
Crown easy [60]Fullerene: The simplest and hitherto elusive C60-crown ether conjugates have been prepared through an effective free-radical approach. This approach includes the activation of the otherwise unreactive α‑C‑H bond in a series of structurally diverse mono- or poly- ethers and sulfides. Successful implementation of this facile method provides an expedient entry to a novel class of previously unexplored fullerene-based materials. A major mechanistic insight has been also achieved.
