Chemical tailoring of fullerene acceptors: synthesis, structures and electrochemical properties of perfluoroisopropylfullerenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

High-temperature syntheses of the new C60(i-C3F7)2,4,6 and C70(i-C3F7)2,4 isomers and their characterization by spectroscopic methods, X-ray crystallography, cyclic voltammetry and density functional theory provide compelling evidence that they are superior electron acceptors than trifluoromethylfullerenes.
