A series of fullerooxazoles have been obtained from the reaction of fullerene trianions. The reaction shows regioselectivity for the formation of heterocycles, which is rationalized by the charge distribution on fullerene cage. The electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical properties of the obtained compounds are reported.
