Based on the conditions for the formation of stable nitroxides, that is, oxidation of a secondary amine which has no α-H, 2-aminoisobutyric acid and diketone were used to react with C60 via 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition to yield [60]fulleropyrrolidine. It is proposed that the compound of bis-fulleropyrrolidines 1 can be synthesized. Furthermore, the bis-fulleropyrrolidines can be oxidized to give a stable bis-nitroxide based on fullerene. However, the results have pointed out that the reactions with C60 only afforded monoadducts 2a after decarboxylation and dehydration perhaps due to steric hindrance.
