Synthesis of highly functionalized C60 fullerene derivatives and their applications in material and life sciences

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly functionalized fullerenes can be efficiently constructed by various techniques. However, the challenge is to synthesize highly symmetrical fullerenes. Recently, a number of X-ray structures have been disclosed showing the high symmetry of substituted fullerenes. By reviewing the major types of multi functionalized fullerenes through selected examples with a link to the structural assignments, the authors intend to give a concise overview to the specialist in the field and to provide the non-specialist with a tool box of possibilities.
