Abstract

The selective insertion of a CH2 or NH group at the 5,6-junction on the C59N skeleton is achieved through the PCl5 induced reaction of a CH2OH or NHOH group on the cage to form [C59N(CH2)]R or [C59N(NH)]R, respectively. Spectroscopic data and single crystal X-ray diffraction structure analysis confirmed the 5,6-open homoazafullerene structure.
