Fullerene-Containing Dendrimers: Synthesis and Properties

Among the large number of molecular subunits used for dendrimer chemistry, C60 has proven to be a versatile building block and fullerene-functionalised dendrimers, i.e. fullerodendrimers, have generated significant research activities in recent years. In particular, the peculiar physical properties of fullerene derivatives make fullerodendrimers attractive candidates for a variety of interesting features in supramolecular chemistry and materials science. In this chapter, selected examples of fullerene-containing dendrimers are presented to particularly highlight the specific features resulting from the dendritic structures.
