The Bingel functionalisation of C60 with a structurally novel tether equipped with three reactive malonate groups afforded a C 2v-symmetrical eedge,eface,trans-1 trisadduct in a complete regioselective manner and in an excellent yield of 65%. The fullerene trisadduct showed pronounced ability to crystallise and gave X-ray quality single crystals for analysis. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
