Transient absorption and pump-probe experiments have been performed on degassed toluene solutions of C60 and eta2-C60Pd(PPh3)2. Previous reports of a 1.2 ns singlet state lifetime for C60 have been confirmed. For the eta2-C60Pd(PPh3)2 compound an extremely fast decay of 12 ps has been observed which is believed to be derived from the rapid depopulation of a charge transfer band which has formed due to electron transfer from metal to ligand.
