Facile fullerene modification: FeCl3-mediated quantitative conversion of C60 to polyarylated fullerenes containing pentaaryl(chloro)[60]fullerenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facile, one-step reaction using inexpensive reagents has been developed for functionalization of [60]fullerene, where the reaction of C60 with FeCl3 in chlorobenzene proceeded at 25 °C with 100% conversion, yielding a mixture of polyarylated products containing pentaaryl(chloro)[60]fullerene, C60(C6H4Cl)5Cl (up to 29%) and other polyarylated fullerenes (number of aryl groups is in a range from 5 to 10).
