Due to the potential applications of fullerene derivatives in materials science and biological science, chemists have been devoted to their synthesis over the past 30 years, and have reported a great diversity of synthetic protocols to fun-ctionalize fullerenes. Among the numerous methods, electrochemical synthesis has been considered to be a novel and efficient strategy due to its mild reaction conditions, good regioselectivity and relatively high yield. The electrochemical functionalizations of [60]fullerene-fused heterocycles have recently attracted wide interest, because electroreduction results in the carbon-heteroatom bond breaking and rearrangement of the heterocyclic moieties on the fullerene skeleton, consequently providing new addition patterns of fullerene derivatives. The electrochemical reactions of [60]fullerene-fused heterocycles since 2011 are reviewed.

Key words: [60]fullerene, [60]fullerene-fused heterocycle, electrochemical reaction, new addition pattern
