    Polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) cages containing an iminofullerene species are reported herein.Monosubstituted benzyl chloride POSS was synthesized, and subsequently reactedwith sodium azide to form mono benzyl azide POSS. The azide was subsequently reacted with C60 in anhydrous, degassed toluene to yield the desired POSS iminofullerene compound. The prepared compounds were characterized by multinuclear NMR, electrospray mass spectrometry, elemental analysis, UV-vis, fluorescence and optical power limitingmeasurements.
