50_27i/2011Inside Cover: Hierarchical Selectivity in Fullerenes: Site-, Regio-, Diastereo-, and Enantiocontrol of the 1,3-Dipolar Cycloaddition to C70 (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 27/2011)

Selectivity is still a major challenge in fullerene research. In their Communication on page 6060 ff. N. Martín, F. Cossío, and co-workers describe how the use of a suitable chiral catalyst controls the addition of fullerenes to both faces of a 1,3-dipole, thus determining the stereochemical outcome. The careful choice of the experimental conditions affords chiral [70]fullerene derivatives with unusually high site- and regioselectivity.
