Fullerene is used as a monomer in this simple method to prepare soluble, well-defined polymers. The sterically controlled azomethine ylide cycloaddition polymerization of fullerene (SACAP) yields macromolecules with molecular weights of around 25 000 g mol(-1). Importantly, cumbersome comonomers are employed to restrict cross linking. Extensive characterizations, with the help of modeling studies, indicate that the polymers are regio-irregular with a majority of trans-3 isomers. Of particular interest is the exceptional ease of preparing polymers with zero metal content. (AU)
