Abstract

Solid-state properties of fullerenes C60 and C70 with particular reference to orientational ordering, structural features and photopolymerization of the films, ferromagnetism in C60-TDAE and interaction of fullerene surfaces with metal clusters are discussed. Electronic properties of nanotubes as well as features of metal-filled hyperfullerenes are presented. The need to study other interesting forms of carbon such as diamond-graphite hybrids is indicated.
