Metathetical coupling of an η5-fullerene ruthenium complex Ru(η5-C60Me5)Cl(CO)2 and sodium cyclopentadienide gives a molecular hybrid of ruthenocene and fullerene, Ru(η5-C60Me5)(η5-C 5H5) (bucky ruthenocene), the structure of which was determined by spectroscopic and crystallographic analyses. The molecule shows unique reactivity among known ferrocene and ruthenocene compounds.
