Abstract: Synthesis of molecules combining both fullerene and
metallocene moieties separated by some spacer is discussed in connection
with the possible intramolecular charge transfer. Two new kinds of spacers,
=CH-CO- and -Pd-P-, have been introduced by using the corresponding
reactions. Reaction of diazoacetyl ferrocene and cymantrene with C60
has been studied in detail and products characterized. 1,1'-Bis (diazoacetyl) ferrocene
gave with C60 1:1 adduct to which the ansa-structure has
been assigned on the basis of 1H and 13C NMR spectra.
Palladium-h2-C60 complex with a bidentate ferrocenyl
diphosphine as a ligand has been also prepared.
