The first reported examples of polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) cages containing a fulleropyrrolidine species are reported herein. Monosubstituted POSS-dioxalane species were synthesized through the hydrosilylation of a silyl-dioxalane with mono-vinyl substituted POSS. Subsequent deprotection yielded the desired aldehyde functionality. An alternative synthetic pathway, involving the nucleophilic substitution of mono-benzyl chloride POSS with 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde yielded the desired...[Show more]
