Synthesis of fullerene oxides [$C_{70}O_n$] ($n=1{\sim}3$ or n=1) in solid state by fullerene [$C_{70}$] and several oxidants such as 3-chloroperoxy benzoic acid, chromium(VI) oxide, benzoyl peroxide, and trichloroisocyanuric acid was taken place under microwave irradiation. The reactivity in solid state oi fullerene [$C_{70}$] with various oxidants under same microwave condition increased in the order of 3-chloroperoxy benzoic acid > chromium(VI) oxide > trichloroisocyanuric acid ${\simeq}benzoyl$ peroxide. The MALDI-TOF-MS, UV-visible spectra and HPLC analysis confirmed that the products of fullerene oxidation were [$C_{70}O_n$] ($n=1{\sim}3$ or n=1).
