Abstract

X-ray structural analysis of octakis(dimethylamino)porphyrazinato- metallo(II)·[60]fullerene complexes (M = Cu2+ and Ni2+) surprisingly revealed two totally different supramolecular structures, the first exhibiting a C(i) symmetric sandwich complex of two slightly dished porphyrazine units enclosing one fullerene sphere, the other featuring a noncentrosymmetric 1:1 complex with a strongly warped porphyrazine unit.
