The ins and outs of fullerene chemistry: Fullerenophosphates with a C3-symmetrical e,e,e-trisaddition pattern were synthesized with high regioselectivity. In- (see structure, red O, yellow P, blue C) and out-invertomers, based on the orientation of the P[DOUBLE BOND]O group, were isolated and their structures were confirmed by X-ray-crystallography.
