The functionalization of fullerenes helps to generate fullerene derivatives with promising properties. DFT calculations proved that the attachment of a cyclohexadiene ring to a [6,6] bond of C60 by a Rh-catalyzed intermolecular [2+2+2] cycloaddition of C60 and two acetylene molecules is an energetically feasible reaction. The most likely, reaction pathway involves an oxidative addition of the two acetylene molecules followed by insertion of C60 into a Rh−C bond of the rhodacyclopentadiene intermediate formed.
