The reaction of the piperazine mono-adduct, N(CH2CH2)2NC60, with diiodine produced well ordered, black crystals of (I2N(CH2CH2)2NI2)C60·2.884(C6H6)·0.116I2, which contains two nearly linear N-I-I units. Reaction of N(CH2CH2)2NC60 with iodine monochloride produced two materials: the dihalogen adduct, (ClIN(CH2CH2)2NICl)C60·2.3(CS2)·0.7(CH2Cl2), when crystallization occurred rapidly from carbon disulfide/dichloromethane solution or the salt, [(N(CH2CH2)2NH)C60(+)][ICl2(-)]·CS2, when crystallization happened more slowly from toluene/dichloromethane solution where hydrolysis of the iodine monochloride by adventitious water presumably occurred.
