Abstract

The reaction of Saturnene (C69F20) with anthracene was described. Dissolved air was required for the reaction as the reactions carried out in dark were not successful. It was found that the reaction yielded 1:1 cycloadduct in which two oxygen atoms were inserted into the anthracene framework due to fullerene-catalyzed oxidation.
