Fullerene Research: “Two Paths to the Same Molecule” – Synthesis of Fullerene-Bipyridine Ligands

Institution

Northern Kentucky University

Abstract

One of our research group’s main objectives has been to produce substituted fullerenes that facilitate metal-catalyzed coupling to other chemical subunits to create supramolecular systems. However, the modular nature of these systems permits alternate synthetic pathways to arrive at the same end product. This poster presents our attempts to investigate various pathways to arrive at the desired molecules, and the pros and cons of each.
