Abstract

Buckminsterfullerene, obtained in good yields at high rates by a suitably designed generator, has been characterized by electron microscopy and in terms of an approximate energy level diagram; C60 undergoes four reversible one-electron reductions giving rise to anionic species and interacts with tetrathiafulvalene to form a charge-transfer complex in the ground state.
