The Regioselectivity of Bingel-Hirsch Cycloadditions on Isolated Pentagon Rule Endohedral Metallofullerenes

Aquest mateix article està publicat a l’edició alemanya d’’Angewandte Chemie’ (ISSN 0044-8249, EISSN 1521-3757), 2016, vol. 128, núm. 7, p. 2420-2423. DOI http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/ange.201509057

In this work, the Bingel-Hirsch addition of diethylbromomalonate to all non-equivalent bonds of Sc3N@D3h-C78 was studied using density functional theory calculations. The regioselectivities observed computationally allowed the proposal of a set of rules, the predictive aromaticity criteria (PAC), to identify the most reactive bonds of a given endohedral metallofullerene based on a simple evaluation of the cage structure. The predictions based on the PAC are fully confirmed by both the computational and experimental exploration of the Bingel-Hirsch reaction of Sc3N@D5h-C80, thus indicating that these rules are rather general and applicable to other isolated pentagon rule endohedral metallofullerenes
