“Dixie cup” packing: Molecules of the first structurally characterized derivative of (C59N)2 bearing trifluoromethyl groups are stacked in register 10.179 Å apart to form a rare non-close-packed arrangement (AAA…; see picture). The presence of the nitrogen atom on the fullerene core results in unique addition patterns in C59N(CF3)7/9/11.
