Azafullerene is a very important compound in fullerene family, which has been attracted extensive attention recently because of its unique structure and reactive activities. Recent progress in the preparation and reaction of azafullerene is summarized in this paper. There are three main methods for the synthesis of azafullerene (Wudl’s method, Hirsch’s method and Gan’s method). Azafullerene reactions include free radical reactions and electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction.

Key words: fullerene, carbon-carbon bond cleavage, free radical
