Electron transfer reduction of a highly electron-deficient fullerene, C60F18, to the defluorinated anion, C60F17- occurs efficiently by a relatively weak one-electron reductant, p-chloranil radical anion; the one-electron reduction potential of C60F18 is evaluated as 0.04 V (vs. SCE) by comparison of the rate constant for electron-transfer from 10,10′-dimethyl-9,9′,10,10′-tetrahydro-9,9′- biacridine to C60F18 with those of other one-electron reductants.
