The simple fullerene diols C(60)(OH)(2) and C(70)(OH)(2) were prepared by addition of RuO(4) followed by acid hydrolysis. The 1,2-C(60)(OH)(2) isomer was formed from C(60), and two isomers (1,2 and 5,6) of C(70)(OH)(2) were formed in the RuO(4) hydroxylation of C(70). These compounds are much more soluble in THF and dioxane than the parent fullerenes. More highly hydroxylated materials are formed as well.
