Electroreduction of a toluene-acetonitrile (4:1 v/v) solution of C60 and cis-Pt(py)2Cl2 in the presence of 0.10 M tetra(n-butyl)ammonium perchlorate as supporting electrolyte produces a black, redox active film that coats the electrode surface. This film retains its redox activity when transferred to an acetonitrile solution that contains only the supporting electrolyte, 0.10 M tetra(n-butyl)ammonium perchlorate. The film has been characterized by infrared spectroscopy, laser desorption mass spectrometry, and XPS spectroscopy. The formation of this film is dependent on the platinum complex used as precursor and on the potential range utilized during film growth. No film growth is observed when Pt(bipy)Cl2, Pt(py)2I2, cis-Pt(PPh3)2Cl2 or trans-Pt(py)2Cl2 are used as precursors, but {Pt(μ-Cl)Cl(C2H4)}2 is a useful precursor which allows film growth at less negative potentials. Chemically prepared C60Pt1 is also electrochemically active when precipitated on a platinum electrode. The formation of an electroactive film from the electroreduction of C70 and cis-Pt(py)2Cl2 is also reported.
