The molecular complex C 60 ·2((Ph 3 P)AuCl) ( 1 ) was synthesized. The crystal and molecular structure of 1 was established by X-ray diffraction analysis. At room temperature, the (60)fullerene molecules in complex 1 are ordered due to π—π interactions between C 60 and the phenyl rings of the chloro(triphenylphosphine)gold(1) molecules. The satellite structure, which accompanies the Cls photoelectron peak of complex 1 , is indicative of a partial suppression of a channel of losses due to π→π transition in the phenyl ring. The 1R spectral data indicate that either a charge is absent or the charge transfer to the fullerene molecule is negligible.
