Abstract

original image

Have a radical ball! Reaction of C60Cl6 with aryl acetylenes through a copper(I)-mediated annulation route to form fullerocyclobutene derivatives is reported. The fullerocyclobutenes are obtained in 36–53 % yields and a possible radical mechanism is proposed for this novel reaction.
