Chain Fullerene C60=C=C60=C=C60: Possible Way to All-Carbon Polymers
Abstract:In this paper, we firstly report a simple but very useful process to extend fullerene chains from monomers via C-bridges: C60 → C60—C—C60 → C60—C—C60—C—C60, similar to extending CH4 or CH2=CH2 to synthesize longer alkyl or alkene chains and these-based materials. The self-assembled formation of C60—C—C60—C—C60 from C60—C—C60 was found to be an isomer-selective process. The results offer a valuable access to C60-based new materials of diverse functionalities, and an implication to the large scale utilization of C60 in polymer science.
