Abstract

The covalent functionalization of C$_{60}$ has developed vigorously over the past 5 years. Several methods are now available for the formation of C$_{60}$ monoadducts. Regioselective formation of multiple adducts has allowed study of the changes in chemical and physical properties that occur when the conjugated fullerene chromophore is reduced during an increase in functionalization. The systematic development of covalent fullerene chemistry provides an unprecedented diversity of tailor-made three-dimensional building blocks for technologically interesting materials.
