Chemistry at the nanoscale: synthesis of an N@C60-N@C60 endohedral fullerene dimer.
- Rattling the cage: The rapid one-pot double 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of the rare endohedral fullerene N@C 60 to an oligo(p-phenylene polyethylene) bis(aldehyde) using a novel amino acid derivative as an anchoring group is reported. The method provides the first example of a chemically linked, two-spin-center N@C 60-N@C 60 molecule (see picture). Assessment of this platform as an element of a quantum computing register is attractive. © 2012 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH and Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
