Carbonyl addition or elimination reactions on an Os5C cluster framework result in a novel interconversion between two C60 bonding modes: μ3- η222-C60 for 1 and μ-η22-C60 for 2. The latter bonding mode had been elusive until now, and treatment of 1 with BnNC and subsequent thermolysis provides yet another example, 3. The μ-η22-C60 ligand exhibits two different orientations with respect to the Os3 face in 2 and 3.
