Complexes of fullerenes C60 and C70 with cobalt(II) and manganese(II) tetraphenylporphyrinates of compositions Mn(TPP)·(C60)2(CS2)1.5 (1), Mn(TPP)·C70(CS2) x , wherex<=1.25 (2), Co(TPP)·C60(CS2)0.5 (3), and Co(TPP)·C70(CS2) x , wherex<0.25 (4), were synthesized and studied by ESR spectroscopy. At 77 K, complexes1 and2 have singlet ESR spectra characteristic of the low-spin (S=1/2) state of MnII, withg=2.002 and linewidths of 250 G and 300 G, respectively, and differing significantly from that of the initial MnII(TPP) (g 1=5.9 andg=2.0,S=5/2). The spectra of complexes1 and2 exposed to oxygen exhibit hyperfine structure due to interaction with55Mn and14N nuclei. The ESR spectra of complexes3 and4 are asymmetric (<g>=2.4, ΔH pp=(500–600) G), which is due to the overlap of parallel and perpendicular spectral components. The absence of ESR signals from C60 .− and C70 .− radical anions makes it possible to conclude that the formation of complexes1–4 is not accompanied by electron transfer from Co(TPP) and Mn(TPP) to fullerences C60 and C70.
