Abstract

original image

Breaking the surface: Replacement of a fullerene cage carbon with a nitrogen or oxygen atom is achieved by reactions mediated with fullerene peroxide. Similar procedures have also generated oxafulleroids with oxygen atoms inserted into the cage skeleton. The dioxafullerene C58O2 was selectively generated in the gas phase under MALDI-TOF conditions.
