Among the many reasons that have made fullerenes popular in science, one is certainly geometry. [60]Fullerene, or C60,1,2 the most abundant representative of the fiillerene family, has the roundest shape one can imagine for a molecule. But many other properties of fullerenes and fullerene derivatives have attracted the attention of physicists and chemists, such as superconductivity,3-6 ferromagnetism,7 spectacular electrochemical8,9 and photophysical behavior.10,11
