It was found that C60 bearing an NCH2CH2(OCH2CH2)2OMe side chain changes its absorption spectrum (and consequently, its visual color) upon addition of AgCF3SO3. The spectroscopic studies established that Ag+ directly interacts with C = C double bonds on the C60 surface. This system serves as a novel methodology to change spectroscopic and redox properties of C60 by added metal cations.
