Regioselective cycloaddition of La2@I(h)-C80 with tetracyanoethylene oxide: formation of an endohedral dimetallofullerene adduct featuring enhanced electron-accepting character


Journal of the American Chemical Society 133(11): 3796-3799
Regioselective cycloaddition of La2@I(h)-C80 with tetracyanoethylene oxide: formation of an endohedral dimetallofullerene adduct featuring enhanced electron-accepting character
We describe the regioselective cycloaddition of La(2)@I(h)-C(80) with tetracyanoethylene oxide (TCNEO), which enabled the formation of the corresponding adduct having a tetracyanotetrahydrofuran moiety. X-ray crystallographic analysis revealed that the cycloaddition took place as a [5,6] addition. Along with dynamic swing motion of the metal atoms, the results of this electrochemical study demonstrate that TCNEO addition enhanced the electron-accepting character of La(2)@I(h)-C(80) and that the first reduction potential of the adduct reached -0.21 V versus the ferrocene/ferrocenium couple, which is the lowest value reported for endohedral metallofullerenes and their derivatives to date.
