Organopalladium or platinum complexes, (η2-C60)M(CNR)2 (1 M =Pt, 3; M - Pd: R = tBu, 2,6-Me2C6H3, 2,4,6-Me3C6H2, cyclohexyl) were synthesized from C60Mn (M = Pd, Pt; n = ca. 1) and the corresponding isonitriles. Unprecedented reaction of 1 with additional isonitriles occurred to form (η2-C60)Pt(CNR)4 (2) in the case where R = 2,6-Me2C6H3, 2,4,6-Me3C6H2, cyclohexyl).
