Efficient Photooxygenation of Olefins by a C_<60> Derivative Bearing an Organofluorine Tail
A C<SUB>60</SUB> derivative bearing an organofluorine tail through the dimethylsilyl moiety (<B>1</B>) was proved to be an efficient photosensitizer in C<SUB>6</SUB>F<SUB>6</SUB>. Photooxygenation of olefins or dienes was accomplished by catalysis of <B>1</B> (0.5–1.5 mol%) at room temperature under an oxygen atmosphere.
