Title Process for producing fullerene derivative
Abstract (US8134019)
The present invention provides a method for producing a fullerene derivative, comprising the organic group addition step B in which an organic group is further added by reacting at least a basic compound and a halogen compound with a fullerene derivative, which is obtained by addition of a hydrogen atom and an organic group in the organic group addition step A, in which an organic group is added by reacting at least a Grignard reagent and a polar substance with a fullerene or fullerene derivative.
