Photoinduced reactions of tertiary amines with fullerene (C<SUB>60</SUB>) were successfully applied to the synthesis of fulleroalkaloids. This method is easy and effective for constructing C<SUB>60</SUB> derivatives containing natural alkaloids for the purpose of checking the influence of the carbon cage on the biological activities of the alkaloids. In this letter, the preparation and characterization of fulleroscandine is reported.
