Fragmentation reactions in the mass spectrometer were used to generate the first characterized nitrogen heterofullerene ions C59N+ and C69N+ from regioselectively synthesized oligoiminofullerenes. During this process one carbon atom in the fullerene core is removed and replaced with a nitrogen atom. C59N+ (shown on the right) has almost the same structure as the isoelectronic C60.
