Association of [60]fullerene with arene ruthenium moieties has been achieved for the first time. Two fullerenopyrrolidine derivatives (Npyr-C60) were synthesized via a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition, and coordinated to arene ruthenium complexes to form two half-sandwich complexes of the general formula...

The hydrogen-bonded arene ruthenium metalla-rectangle, [(p-cymene) 2Ru2(OOnOO)(UPy)2]24+ , obtained from 1-(4-oxo-6-undecyl-1,4-dihydropyrimidin-2-yl)-3-(pyridin-4- ylmethyl)urea (UPy) and the dinuclear arene ruthenium clip (p-cymene) 2Ru2(OOnOO)Cl2 (OOnOO = 2,5-dioxido-1,4- benzoquinonato), is investigated by...
