Definition

Fullerene dendrimers refer to regularly branched structures containing at least one fullerene molecule. In general, it can be differentiated between several positions where the spherical C 60 cage can be incorporated, i.e., at the center, within the branches, or at the surface of the dendrimer. As valid for dendrimers in general, an important feature that distinguishes fullerodendrimers from fullerene-containing polymers is the monodispersity of this aesthetically pleasing class of molecules (Fig. 1).
