Reduction of the benzoquinone-linked [60]fullerene first gives the moroanion containing the semiquinone-radical and C60-moieties. The further reduction of the monoanion produces the dianion containing the semiquinone-radical and C60-anion moieties. The EPR spectra of the dianion clearly show the triplet interaction between the semiquinone and C60 radical anions.
