Title: Regioisomer-specific electron affinities and electronic structures of C 70 para-adducts at polar and equatorial positions with (bromo)benzyl radicals: photoelectron spectroscopy and theoretical study

Negative ion photoelectron spectroscopy shows interesting regioisomer-specific electron affinities (EAs) of 2,5– and 7,23– para-adducts of C70 [(ArCH2)2C70] (Ar = Ph, o-, m-, and p-BrC6H4). Their EA values are larger than that of C70 by 5-150 meV with the 2,5– polar adducts’ EAs being higher than their corresponding 7,23– equatorial counterparts, exhibiting appreciable EA tunable ranges and regioisomer specificity. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations reproduce both the experimental EA values and EA trends very well.
