Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 139)


Metal fiilleride salts are highly-correlated systems, which display a remarkable sensitivity of their structural and electronic properties on many chemically and physically tunable parameters, including interfullerene separation, orientational order/disorder, valence state, orbital degeneracy, low-symmetry distortions and metal- C60 interactions. In this chapter, we discuss some key issues of current research on fiillerene-based materials, including the metal-antiferromagnetic insulator transition at large interfullerene separations, the tuning of the electronic and magnetic properties by weak intermolecular interactions and the intermediate valence behaviour of rare-earth fullerides.
