Reaction of Rh6(CO)12(dppm)2 (dppm = 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)methane) with 1.4 equiv. of C60 in chlorobenzene at 120 °C affords a face-capping C60 derivative Rh6(CO)9(dppm)23222-C60) (1) in 73% yield. Treatment of 1 with excess CNR (10 equiv., R = CH2C6H5) at 80 °C provides a bisbenzylisocyanide-substituted compound Rh6(CO)7(dppm)2(CNR)23222-C60) (2) in 59% yield. Reaction of 1 with excess C60 (4 equiv.) in refluxing chlorobenzene followed by treatment with 1 equiv. of CNR at room temperature gives a bisfullerene sandwich complex Rh6(CO)5(dppm)2(CNR)(μ3222-C60)2 (3) in 31% yield. Compounds 12, and 3have been characterized by spectroscopic and microanalytical methods as well as by X-ray crystallographic studies. Electrochemical properties of 12, and 3 have been examined by cyclic voltammetry. The cyclic voltammograms (CVs) of 1 and 2 show two reversible one-electron redox waves, a reversible one-step two-electron redox wave, and a reversible one-electron redox wave, respectively, within the solvent cutoff window. This observation suggests that compounds 1 and 2 undergo similar C60-localized electrochemical pathways up to 15- and 25-. Each redox wave of 2 appears at more negative potentials compared to that of 1 because of the donor effect of the benzylisocyanide ligand. The CV of compound 3 reveals six reversible well-separated redox waves due to strong interfullerene electronic communication via the Rh6 metal cluster bridge. The electrochemical properties of 12, and 3 have been rationalized by molecular orbital calculations using the density functional theory (DFT) method. In particular, the molecular orbital (MO) calculation reveals significant contribution of the metal cluster center to the unoccupied molecular orbitals in 3, which is consistent with the experimental result of strong interfullerene electronic communication via the Rh6 metal cluster spacer.
