Fullerene C60 was considered as electron-deficient compound,16 C.A. Reed and R.D. Bolskar, Chem. Rev. 100 (2000), pp. 1075–1120.

As part of our continuing interest in the chemical transformation of fluoroalkanesulfonyl azides, we now report our preliminary investigation of the first reaction of C60 with fluorinated azides and discuss the possible reaction mechanism.
The reactions of  fullerene with excess fluoroalkanesulfonyl azides RfSO2N3 in o-dichlorobenzene under thermal or microwave irradiation condition afforded monoadduct opened [5,6]-bridged azafulleroids. While, similarly treatment of 2,2,2-trifluoroethyl azides CF3CH2N3 with C60 gave two monoadducts, i.e., opened [5,6]-bridged azafulleroids, closed [6,6]-bridged Aziridino-fullerene, and some multi-addition product. A general mechanism for these addition reactions was proposed.
