A significant improvement in the selectivity of fullerene trifluoromethylation reactions was achieved. Reaction of trifluoroiodomethane with [60]fullerene at 460 degrees C and [70]fullerene at 470 degrees C in a flow reactor led to isolation of cold-zone-condensed mixtures of C60(CF3)n and C70(CF3)n compounds with narrow composition ranges: 6 < or = n < or(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)
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)
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)
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)
The title compound, C(72)F(36), is one of four isomers of C(60)(CF(3))(12) for which crystal structures have been obtained. The fullerene mol-ecule has an idealized I(h) C(60) core with the 12 CF(3) groups arranged in an asymmetric fashion on two ribbons of edge-sharing C(6)(CF(3))(2) hexa-gons, a para-meta-para-para-para-meta-para ribbon and a(More)
Eight new C70(CF3)n derivatives (n=2, 6, 10, 12) have been synthesized and characterized by UV/Vis and 19F NMR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, and quantum chemical calculations at the DFT level of theory. Nine previously known derivatives of C70(CF3)n with n=2-12 were also studied by cyclic voltammetry (and seven of them by UV/Vis spectroscopy for the(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)
