Milligram amounts of the new compounds 1,9- and 1,7-C60F(CF3) (ca. 85:15 mixture of isomers) and C60F3(CF3) were isolated from a high-temperature C60/K2PtF6 reaction mixture and purified to 98 mol % compositional purity by two-dimensional high-performance liquid chromatography using Buckyprep and Buckyclutcher columns. The previously observed compounds(More)
The frontier orbitals of 22 isolated and characterized C(60)(CF(3))(n) derivatives, including seven reported here for the first time, have been investigated by electronic spectroscopy (n = 2 [1], 4 [1], 6 [2], 8 [5], 10 [6], 12 [3]; the number of isomers for each composition is shown in square brackets) fluorescence spectroscopy (n = 10 [4]), cyclic(More)
The EPR spectrum of the Y@C(82) molecules isolated in solid argon matrix was recorded for the first time at a temperature of 5 K. The isotropic hyperfine coupling constant (hfcc) A(iso) = 0.12 +/- 0.02 mT on the nucleus (89)Y as derived from the EPR spectrum is found in more than two times greater than that obtained in previous EPR measurements in liquid(More)
Adding 1% of the metallic elements cerium, lanthanum, and yttrium to graphite rod electrodes resulted in different amounts of the hollow higher fullerenes (HHFs) C76-D2(1), C78-C2v(2), and C78-C2v(3) in carbon-arc fullerene-containing soots. The reaction of trifluoroiodomethane with these and other soluble HHFs at 520-550 degrees C produced 21 new(More)
We show that electron transfer from the perchlorotriphenylmethide anion (PTM(-)) to Y@C82(C2v) is an instantaneous process, suggesting potential applications for using PTM(-) to perform redox titrations of numerous endohedral metallofullerenes. The first representative of a Y@C82-based salt containing the complex cation was prepared by treating Y@C82(C2v)(More)
The decakis(trifluoromethyl)fullerene C(1)-C(70)(CF(3))(10), in which the CF(3) groups are arranged on a para(7)-meta-para ribbon of C(6)(CF(3))(2) edge-sharing hexagons, and which has now been prepared in quantities of hundreds of milligrams, was reacted under standard Bingel-Hirsch conditions with a bis-pi-extended tetrathiafulvalene (exTTF) malonate(More)
Reaction of C(60) with CF(3)I at 550 degrees C, which is known to produce a single isomer of C(60)(CF(3))(2,4,6) and multiple isomers of C(60)(CF(3))(8,10), has now been found to produce an isomer of C(60)(CF(3))(6) with the C(s)-C(60)X(6) skew-pentagonal-pyramid (SPP) addition pattern and an epoxide with the C(s)-C(60)X(4)O variation of the SPP addition(More)
Cyclic voltammograms are reported for C(60)(CF(3))(n) derivatives for the first time. The compounds studied were 1,9-C(60)(CF(3))(2) and 3 isomers of C(60)(CF(3))(10), including the structurally characterized derivative 1,3,7,10,14,17,23,28,31,40-C(60)(CF(3))(10) (C(60)(CF(3))(10)-3). The compound 1,9-C(60)(CF(3))(2) exhibited 3 reversible reductions;(More)
The charged states of C(60)(CF(3))(2n) (2n = 2-10) derivatives have been studied by electron spin resonance (ESR) and vis-near-infrared (NIR) spectroelectrochemistry. The anion radicals and diamagnetic dianions were furthermore described by theoretical calculations. The ESR spectra of anion radicals exhibit complex patterns due to multiple CF(3) groups.(More)
