Abstract

The first reported examples of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) cages containing a fulleropyrrolidine species are reported herein. Monosubstituted POSS-dioxalane species were synthesized through the hydrosilylation of a silyl-dioxalane with mono-vinyl substituted POSS. Subsequent deprotection yielded the desired aldehyde functionality. An alternative synthetic pathway, involving the nucleophilic substitution of mono-benzyl chloride POSS with 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde yielded the desired aldehyde functionality. Each mono-aldehyde POSS was then reacted with N-methylglycine and C 60 to yield the desired POSS fulleropyrrolidines. The prepared compounds were characterized by multinuclear NMR, electrospray mass spectrometry, UV-VIS, fluorescence and optical power limiting measurements.
