Prato reaction of M3N@I(h)-C80 (M = Sc, Lu, Y, Gd) with reversible isomerization.
The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of an azomethine ylide (Prato reaction) with M(3)N@I(h)-C(80) (denoted as M(3)N@C(80); M = Sc, Lu, Y, Gd) was carried out to obtain fulleropyrrolidinebis(carboxylicExpand

Endohedral metal-induced regioselective formation of bis-Prato adduct of Y3N@I(h)-C80 and Gd3N@I(h)-C80.
Regioselective bisaddition of M3N@Ih-C80 (M = Y, Gd) was observed for the first time in the Prato reaction with N-ethylglycine and formaldehyde. The main kinetic bisadduct of Y3N@C80 was determinedExpand

Water-soluble C60- and C70-PVP polymers for biomaterials with efficient (1)O2 generation.
Highly water-soluble fullerene polymers were successfully prepared by a simple direct free-radical copolymerization of N-vinylpyrrolidone and intact C60 or C70 as a radical-capping agent. Using AIBNExpand

Photoswitching tripodal single molecular tip for noncontact AFM measurements: synthesis, immobilization, and reversible configurational change on gold surface.
Tripodal molecules consisting of a tetrasubstituted adamantane with three phenylacetylene legs and a reversibly photoswitching apex were designed as "single molecular tips" for both chemical andExpand

C60 pyrrolidine bis-carboxylic acid derivative as a versatile precursor for biocompatible fullerenes.
A C60 Prato derivative with bis-(t)Bu ester was prepared as a stable and convenient scaffold for the development of fullerene derivatives such as water-soluble C60-PEG conjugates, fulleropeptides viaExpand

Essential factors for control of the equilibrium in the reversible rearrangement of M₃N@I(h)-C₈₀ fulleropyrrolidines: exohedral functional groups versus endohedral metal clusters.
The effects of exohedral moieties and endohedral metal clusters on the isomerization of M3N@I(h)-C80 products from the Prato reaction through [1,5]-sigmatropic rearrangement were systematicallyExpand

Water-soluble fullerene materials for bioapplications: photoinduced reactive oxygen species generation.
The photoinduced reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation from several water-soluble fullerenes was examined. Macromolecular or small molecular water-soluble fullerene complexes/derivatives wereExpand

RAFT synthesis of poly(vinylpyrrolidone) amine and preparation of a water-soluble C60-PVP conjugate
An amine-terminated poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) was prepared by radical polymerization using a xanthate-type RAFT agent. The obtained PVP (ca. 20 kDa) was converted to PVP-NH2, which was coupledExpand
