 Abstract: The electronic structure of the C60 fragment in alkali- and alkaline-earth-doped fullerides is studied theoretically. With increasing metal-to-C60 charge transfer (CT) the n electronic properties of the soccerball are changed. In the undoped solid and for not too high a concentration of doping atoms the hexagon-hexagon (6-6) bonds show sizeable double bond character while the hexagon-pentagon (6-5) bonds are essentially of single bond type. In systems with a high concentration of doping atoms this relative ordering is changed. Now the 6-5 bonds have partial double bond character and the 6-6 bonds are essentially single bonds. The high ability of the C60 unit to accomodate excess electrons prevents any sizeable weakening of the overall n bonding in systems with up to 12 excess electrons on the soccerball. A crystal orbital (CO) formalism on the basis of an INDO (intermediate neglect of differential overlap) Hamiltonian has been employed to derive solid state results for potassium- and barium-doped C60 fullerides. For both types of doping atoms an incomplete metal-to-C60 CT is predicted. In the potassium-doped fullerides the magnitude of the CT depends on the interstitial site of the dopant. The solid state data have been supplemented by INDO and ab initio calculations on molecular C60, C6-60 and C12-60. The calculated bondlength alternation in the neutral molecule is changed in C12-60 where the length of the 6-6 bonds exceeds the length of the 6-5 bonds. The geometries of the three molecular species have been optimized with a 3-21 G* basis. The theoretically derived modification of the C60 (π) electronic structure as a function of the electron count is explained microscopically in the framework of two quantum statistics accessible for π electronic ensembles. In the π ensemble of the C60 fragment so-called hard core bosonic properties are maximized where the Pauli antisymmetry principle has the character of a hidden variable only. Here the electronic degrees of freedom are attenuated only by the Pauli exclusion principle. This behaviour leads to the changes in the π electronic structure mentioned above.
