(Chemical Equation Presented) A Pd(II) catalyst for the hydroarylation of fullerene with boronic acids is presented. Treatment of C60 with an arylboronic acid in the presence of a catalytic amount of Pd(2-PyCH=NPh) (OCOC6F5)2 in H2O/1,2-Cl 2C6H4 at room temperature furnishes the hydroarylation product (Ar-C60-H) in good yield with high selectivity. This complex possesses high catalytic activity paired with bench stability in the solid state.
