Ni-Catalyzed direct 1,4-difunctionalization of [60]fullerene with benzyl bromides

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new Ni-catalyzed direct 1,4-difunctionalization of [60]fullerene with various benzyl bromides has been developed. The use of a DMSO additive combined with a nickel catalyst is indispensable for the formation of 1,4-dibenzyl fullerenes with a variety of functional groups. The reaction proceeds through the formation of a fullerene monoradical species.
