Synthesis of 2-Aminomethylpyridene-appended  Fullerenes. On the Difference in the Metal-binding Properties between 5,6-Open and 6,6-Closed Isomers
Two 2-aminomethylpyridine-appended fullerenes (1) with the 5,6-open and the 6,6-closed structure were synthesized in order to examine the influence of the structural difference on the metal-binding ability. Both compounds could form the 1:1 complex with Ag<SUP>+</SUP> but the K<SUB>ass</SUB> for 5,6-1 was larger by more than two orders of magnitude than that for 6,6-1.
