Abstract

Adding a compact dihydromethano (CH2 ) group to a 58π-indene fullerene (C60 (Ind)) creates a 56π-electron dihydromethano/indene fullerene (C60 (CH2 )(Ind)) and raises the LUMO level with only a minimal increase in size. This class of compounds features reduced conjugation that raises the LUMO level, and a high electron mobility because of the small CH2 addend.
