The data obtained by the authors in the field of carbon cluster chemistry, namely, the catalytic cycloaddition of sulfur-containing diazo compounds to C60-fullerene under the action of complex Pd-catalysts, are summarized. Cycloaddition reactions of diazoalkanes, diazoketones, diazothioates with C60- fullerene, catalyzed by Pd(acac)2-PPh3-Et3Al, with selective formation of new sulfur-containing methano- and homo-, and pyrazolinofullerenes, promising as modern nanosized additives to oils for highly loaded mechanisms.

Keywords: fullerenes, diazo compounds, methanofullerenes, homofullerenes, metal complex catalysis, tribology, additives
