  • Publication number: 20200095209
    Abstract: This method for producing a fullerene derivative is a method for producing a fullerene derivative having a partial structure shown by formula (1) by reacting a predetermined halogenated compound and two carbon atoms adjacent to each other for forming a fullerene skeleton in a mixed solvent of an aromatic solvent and an aprotic polar solvent having a C?O or S?O bond in the presence of at least one metal selected from the group comprising manganese, iron, and zinc; (in formula (1), C* are each carbon atoms adjacent to each other for forming a fullerene skeleton, A is a linking group having 1-4 carbon atoms for forming a ring structure with two C*, in which a portion thereof may be a substituted or condensed group).

  • Patent number: 9246104
    Abstract: A fullerene derivative represented by the following formula (1): wherein “FLN” represents a fullerene core, R1 represents an optionally substituted C1-C24 alkyl group or an optionally substituted C7-C24 aralkyl group, R2 and R3 independently represent a hydrogen atom or an optionally substituted C1-C24 hydrocarbon group but excluding a case where both of R2 and R3 are hydrogen atoms, and R2 and R3 may combine together to form a ring.
