Abstract

[60]Fullerene can bind a variety of metal clusters via η2-C60, μ-η2: η2-C60, and μ322: η2-C60 π-type bonding modes. Multiple C60 additions to a single cluster core have also been demonstrated. Modification of the coordination sphere of cluster moieties has resulted in novel transformation of the coordination mode of the C60 ligand between π and σ (μ311: η2-C60 and μ312: η1-C60) types as well as reversible interconversion between μ322: η2-C60 and μ-η22-C60. The μ3222 metal cluster complexes show remarkable electrochemical stability and an unusually strong electronic communication between C60 and metal cluster centers.
