Although derivatives of fullerenes are prevalent in the fullerene-producing flame, the chemistry of these derivatives has rarely been discussed in the previous literature. In this paper, two D-Sh-C-70 derivatives, C-70(C14H10) and C-70(C5H6), were isolated from the soot of an acetylene benzene combustion. On the basis of detailed MS, NMR, IR, and UV/vis analyses in combination with DFT calculations, the cycloadduct structures of C-70(C14H10) and C-20(C5H6) were identified. Both the anthracene (C14H10) and the cyclopentadiene (C5H6) adducts, supposed as the intermediate species produced during the combustion process, were characterized to bond at a [6,6] ring junction at the end of the olivary C-70 cage. The present work exemplifies the capture of possible intermediates by the C-70 fullerene from the flame and thus provides insight into the mechanism responsible for the formation of fullerene-containing soot.
