Chemistry of h5-fullerene
Eiichi Nakamura and Masaya Sawamura
Department of Chemistry, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo
Abstract: Treatment of fullerene with an organocopper reagent
converts one of the pentagons of the fullerene into cyclopentadienyl
anion through addition of five organic groups on every peripheral carbon
atom surrounding the pentagon. Similar treatment of fullerene afforded
indenyl anion through regioselective tri-addition of the organic group.
These anionic moieties strongly interact with the remainder of the fullerene
p-system, and provide unique opportunity for exploration of organometallic
chemistry of a new class of metal cyclopentadienides.
