Abstract Recent work has shown that permanent openings consisting of 11- and 14-membered rings can be created on C{sub 60}, but the hole is too small or hindered to allow the introduction of an atom into fullerene framework. In this context, we are reporting the unprecedented formation of the cobalt(III) complex 1 resulting from a sequential triple scission of a six-membered ring on C{sub 60} affording a 15-membered ring. This type of complex could be one of the most promising candidates for introduction of a metal into the C{sub 60} framework. 19 refs., 1 fig., 1 tab.
