Abstract

Sumanene (C21H12) is a C3v symmetric buckybowl, which corresponds to a partial fullerene structure. Recent advances in the syntheses of sumanene and its derivatives, including heterasumanenes, are summarized in this review. Their chemical reactivities and derivatizations are also presented.
