The construction of nanoscale devices is a potentially important area of technology. Efforts in this area of chemistry have largely concentrated on the preparation of rigid organic molecules for use as spacers. These compounds are used to separate electronically active units, usually metal complexes, by defined distances. We have been investigating the use of fullerenes as connectors in the construction of these extended assemblies. In this paper we will present our results on the preparation of these compounds, including discussions of the regiochemistry of the second addition of a nitrile oxide to a fullerene isoxazoline.
