Fragmentation of the 60 fullerene cage during bromination
Heating [60]fullerene with Br-2/FeCl3/benzene under reflux for 24 h yields in addition to the previously observed phenylated fullerenes, two bromine-containing open-cage products of 768/770 and 848 amu, each of which fragments to decacyclene during El mass spectrometry. This provides an example of the reverse of the [60]fullerene synthesis from aromatic precursors.

Abstract

Heating [60]fullerene with Br-2/FeCl3/benzene under reflux for 24 h yields in addition to the previously observed phenylated fullerenes, two bromine-containing open-cage products of 768/770 and 848 amu, each of which fragments to decacyclene during El mass spectrometry. This provides an example of the reverse of the [60]fullerene synthesis from aromatic precursors.
