Abstract

Introducing boron: Heterofullerenes that incorporate boron have been scarcely studied because a formation route from C60 is not known. It is now reported that C59B−, an electronically closed-shell species, is formed directly from pristine C60 in the gas-phase by facile atom exchange reactions.
