Abstract: A direct synthetic method for producing oxazoline-fused fullerenes, that is, fullerooxazoles, from [60] fullerene and readily available carboxamides by radical pathways has been developed. The method presented allows efficient access to a variety of fullerooxazoles with high functional compatibility under mild reaction conditions. Furthermore, systematic investigation of their properties, such as solubility, thermostability, and electrochemical behavior, was conducted.
