The synthesis of a new fulleropyrrolidine-(tricarbonyl)chromium complex: 1-methyl-2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-3,4-fulleropyrrolidine-(tricarbonyl)chromium is described together with its characterization by IR, NMR and cyclic voltammetry. IR spectro-electrochemistry has been used to probe the redox level of the fullerene derivative via the relative position of the vibrational bands of the CO ligands, which are sensitive to the electronic state of the complex. Other strategies to incorporate a tricarbonylchromium moiety to fullerene C60 are also briefly discussed and evaluated.
