Abstract

original image

The cage N atom in C59N directs the addition pattern in reactions with CF3I. A. A. Popov, A. Hirsch, S. H. Strauss, O. V. Boltalina, and co-workers report in their Communication on page 5537 ff. on a series of C59N(CF3)n compounds (n=5–11). The X-ray structure of C59N(CF3)5 shows that this derivatized azafullerene exhibits a skew-pentagonal-pyramid structure. The molecules are arranged in distorted hexagonal-close-packed layers that are stacked in register (i.e. AAA).
