Chemistry and Pharmacology
New dumb-bell-type fullerene adducts 2, 4, and 8a-b could be synthesized via bifunctional nitrile oxides. The fullerene derivative 16 of this type was synthesized by twofold esterification with an isoxazolofullerenecarboxylic acid derivative. In the latter case the reaction was used to link the archimedic polyhedron fullerene with the platonic element cubane. When a bulky spacer between the fullerene units was used, atropisomeres 8a-b occurred. The fullerene derivative 11 with an anthracene moiety exhibited axial chirality.
