마이크로파 조건에서 여러가지 산화제를 이용한 풀러렌[$C_{60}$의 산화반응

  • Published : 2005.03.31


Synthesis or fullerene oxides[$C_{60}(O)_n$] ($n=1{\sim}4$ or n=1) by fullerene[$C_{60}$] and several oxidants such as 3-chloroperoxy benzoic acid, benzoyl peroxide, trichloroisocyanuric acid, and chromium(VI) oxide took place under microwave irradiation. The reactivity in solid state of fullerene[$C_{60}$] with various oxidants under same microwave rendition increased in order or 3- chloroperoxy benzoic acid > benzoyl peroxide > trichloroisocyanuric acid $\simeq$chromium(VI) oxide. The MALDI-TOF-MS, UV-visible spectra and HPLC analysis confirmed that the products of fullerene oxidation were [$C_{60}(O)_n$] ($n=1{\sim}4$ or n=1).
