Abstract

Endohedral metallofullerenes were for the first time trifluoromethylated to afford the isolation and characterization of two isomers of Y@C82(CF3)5 and of three isomers of Ce@C82(CF3)5. All of the purified new compounds were characterized by S8-MALDI mass spectrometry, UV-vis and by 1D and 2D-COSY 19F NMR spectroscopy. The most probable structures proposed from the NMR data and quantum chemical calculations, contain 1,4 chains of CF3 groups.
