For the first time an easier, operable combustion method is employed for the synthesis of non-IPR fullerene, and an octahydro[60]fullerene with a non-IPR C(60) cage (C(60) isomer (#1809)C(60)) produced by combustion is isolated and characterized by MS, UV-vis, IR, and NMR spectroscopies in combination with DFT calculations. This finding shows that, in addition to chlorine, hydrogen can be an ample cataloreactant for the production of non-IPR fullerene derivatives under such conditions as arc-burning and diffusion combustion.
