Oxadiamondoids representing a new class of carbon nanoparticles were prepared from the respective diamondoid ketones via an effective two-step procedure involving addition of methyl magnesium iodide and oxidation with trifluoroperacetic acid in trifluoroacetic acid. The reactivities of the oxacages are determined by the position of the dopant and are in good agreement with computational predictions.
