A mono- to di- and triphosphane transformation occurs on treatment of [Ir4(CO)9(PPh3)3] (1) with C 60 to successively afford 2 and 3. The noninnocent, multifunctional C60 ligand plays a crucial role in transforming three PPh3 ligands into a μ3-PPh2(o-C6H4) P(o-C6H4) PPh(η1-o-C6H 4) triphosphane ligand by a series of ortho-phosphanation and ortho-metalation processes on the Ir4 cluster framework.
