Fullerenes which were thought to be ‘superaromatics’ are actually ‘superalkenes’. Reactions in fullerenes are varied, ranging from the addition of simple molecules like H2 to large molecules like dendrimers. The synthesis, structure, characterization, along with simple reactions like halogenation, oxygenation, metalation, cycloaddition, polymerization and dendrimer addition are discussed.
