Abstract

Results of research on bromination of [60]fullerene in organic solvents and liquid bromine are summarized. The conditions of the synthesis of bromofullerenes C60Br6 and C60Br8 were optimized. The formation of bromide C60Br14 was detected. A model was proposed for the description of the processes involved in bromination of C60 in organic solvents. The crystal and molecular structures of C60Br6, C60Br6· CS2, C60Br8·CHBr3· 2Br2, and C60Br24·C6H 4Cl2·Br2 were established by X-ray diffraction analysis.
