Near-IR absorptive emerald green [60]fullerene (EF-6MC 2) is capable of highly light-harvesting molecule. Photoinduced intermolecular electron transfer between EF-6MC 2 and several electron donors in benzonitrile led to observation of the optical absorption of (EF-6MC 2) .- at 1300 nm, the longest absorption wavelength among many [60]fullerenyl radical anions.
