Abstract

A newly designed fullerodendron was synthesized in good yield (84%) by the use of a Diels-Alder reaction of C60 with an anthryl dendron. Interestingly, the fullerodendron acts as a new catalyst that uses oxygen and light to generate singlet oxygen (1O2). The dendron facilitates various types of singlet oxygenation reactions including ene reaction, Diels-Alder reaction, and oxidation of phenol and sulfide.
