Fullerene derivatives with novel 1,4,9,25- and 1,4,9,12-configurations were obtained by reactions of C60 with aliphatic ketones and benzyl bromide under basic conditions. The structures of the products were determined by X-ray single-crystal diffraction and spectroscopic characterization. The reactions were rationalized by a monoenolate addition experiment and in situ vis–NIR spectroscopy.
