In refluxing chlorobenzene C60 reacts with Ru5C(CO)15 or with Ru6C(CO)17 to form new complexes, which are isolated following treatment with tertiary phosphines to give the structurally characterized, facebonded derivatives Ru5C(CO)11(PPh3)(μ3-η 2:η2:η2-C60) (1) and Ru6C(CO)12(dppm)(μ3-η 2:η2:η2-C60) (2).
