Abstract

Pentaphosphaferrocene [Cp∗Fe(η 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.
