Cyclopentadienyl (Cp) capped polymers [polyethylene glycols (PEGs), M n = 2 000 g mol-1], react readily with fullerenes in a 1:1 molar ratio (relative to the amount of fullerenes and Cpend groups) at ambient temperature within 5 min in the absence of any catalyst in a DielsAlder (DA) reaction to provide fullerene-PEG hybrids. Similarly, anthracenyl capped PEGs react with fullerenes (in a 1:3 molar ratio) in DA reactions to yield the corresponding hybrids, albeit over a period of 1.5 h at 80 °C and a lesser conversion. The efficiency of the transformation is monitored via electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS), demonstrating that the fullerenes can be transformed into polymer hybrids; most efficiently when Cp-functional polymer is used as the diene. In addition, the obtained hybrids were subjected to UV/Vis as well as thermogravimetric analysis further underpinning the formation of monosubstituted C60-PEG hybrids [wt.-%exp 70 ±5 (PEG), 30 ±5 (C60), wt.-%theo 68 (PEG), 32 (C 60)].

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
