Distorted order: The synthesis and X-ray crystallographic analysis of single crystals of [Cs(THF)4]C60 are reported. The data obtained provide structural information sufficient to prove a Jahn–Teller distortion in the C60 anion radical. For the first time the transition from static to dynamic Jahn–Teller effects in fullerides has been observed directly by X-ray analysis and corroborated by magnetic measurements and EPR experiments.
