From nano-balls to nano-bowls

Brake, Helena ; Peresypkina, Eugenia ; Heindl, Claudia ; Virovets, Alexander V. ; Kremer, Werner ; Scheer, Manfred


Pentaphosphaferrocene [Cp*Fe(eta(5)-P-5)]in combination with Cu(I) halides is capable of a template-directed synthesis of fullerene-like spheres. Herein, we present the use of a triple decker complex as template that leads to the formation of unprecedented 'nano-bowls'. These spherical domes resemble the truncated fullerenes I-h-C-80 and represent a novel spherical arrangement in the chemistry of spherical molecules.
