8.Summary of Research Results

We carried out intensively the present research on the creation, reactions, properties, and functions of new compounds and materials derived from C60. The research results, categorized roughly into six, are as follows.
(1) Creation of C60 Supramolecular Complexes and Their Reactions
Creation of a Monocapped -Cyclodextrin/C60 Supramolecular Complex
Creation of a Bicapped -Cyclodextrin/C60 Supramolecular Complex
(2) Creation of C60 Derivatives Having New-Type Bond(s) and Their Reactions
Development of a General Method for the Preparation of Methano[C60]s by the Fluoride Ion-Mediated Reaction with Silylated Nucleophiles
Development of a New Method for the Preparation of Formylmethano[C60]
Development of a New Method for the Preparation of (Chlorocarbonyl)methano[C60]
(3) Creation of C60 Polymers and Their Structures
Creation of equatorial-Biscyclopropanated C60 Pearl-Necklace Polyamides
Creation of trans-2-Biscyclopropanated C60 Pearl-Necklace Polyamides
Creation of trans-4-Biscyclopropanated C60 Pearl-Necklace Polyamides
(4) Properties and Functions of New Materials thus Created
Elucidation of the Dinitrogen Reductability of the Bicapped -Cyclodextrin/C60 Supramolecular Complex Anion
Elucidation of the Catalytic Reductability of the Bicapped -Cyclodextrin/C60 Supramolecular Complex Anion
Elucidation of the Catalytic Asymmetric Reductability of the Bicapped -Cyclodextrin/C60 Supramolecular Complex Anion
(5) Prediction of the Reactivity of C60 and Its Derivatives
Explanation of the Product Distribution for the Cyclopropanation of C120
Explanation of the Regioselectivity for the C60 Bisadduct Formation
Explanation of the Effect of the Leaving Groups in Tehter-Directed Biscyclopropanations of C60
(6) Large-Scale Production of C60
Proposal for the Large-Scale Production of C60 by the Shock Heating
Development of a Method for the Large-Scale Production of C60 from Carbon Black by the High-Pressure Burning
