  Fullerodendrimers: Photophysical Properties and Applications
  pp.195-215 (21) Authors: Ruben Caballero, Jean-Francois Nierengarten
doi: 10.2174/10195

Among the large number of molecular subunits used for dendrimer chemistry, C60 has proven to be a versatile building block and fullerene-functionalized 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 review, selected examples of photoactive fullerene-containing dendrimers are presented to highlight the specific features resulting from the dendritic structures.
