Metal-molecule clusters, Vn(benzene)m, Con(benzene)m, and their ions, were synthesized by the reaction of laser-vaporized vanadium atoms with benzene vapor. Both neutral and cationic Vn(benzene)m clusters exhibit magic number behavior at m = n + 1 (n = 1-5), which was explicable in terms of multiple-decker sandwich structure.
