    • Abstract

       

      Upon Birch reduction, C70 forms C70H30 as a major product. Besides reporting spectroscopic properties, we discuss the possible structures of C70H30 and suggest that the most stable structure is derived by exclusive 1,4-addition to the corannulene units and to the central pentaphenyl belt in C70.
