Youn-Jaung Cho, Hyunjoon Song, Kwangyeol Lee, Kyuwon Kim, Juhyoun Kwak, Sehun Kim and Joon T. Park, "The first observation of four-electron reduction in [60]fullerene-metal cluster self-assembled monolayers (SAMs)," Chem. Commun., 2002 (24), 2966 - 2967 (2002).

Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of a m3-h2:h2:h2-C60 triosmium cluster complex Os3(CO)8(CN(CH2)3Si(OEt)3)(m3-h2:h2:h2-C60) (2) on ITO or Au surface exhibit ideal, well-defined electrochemical responses and remarkable electrochemical stability being reducible up to tetraanionic species in their cyclic voltammograms.
