Abstract

The reaction of [60]fullerene with a dimethylsulfonium α-formylalkylide gave a novel methano[60]fullerene having a formyl group at the bridge-head carbon. This 2,2-[60]fulleroalkanal was readily converted into a variety of N-aryl-2,2-[60]fulleroaldimines by condensation with aromatic amines; one of them showed efficient quenching of the fluorescence of the [60]fullerene core, due to a photoinduced intramolecular electron transfer.
