About this book

Fullerene Polymers and Fullerene Polymer Composites is an in-depth experimental and theoretical account of polymers and composites whose unusual properties, such as photophysical phenomena, electrical transport, phase transitions and magnetic properties, stem from the incorporation of C60 in the material. Each chapter is written by a renowned expert who has published extensively in this sub-field of fullerene materials. Introductory chapters on the fundamental properties of fullerenes (C60, C70) and photophysical phenomena in fullerenes and polymers are also included.


Fundamental properties of fullerenes; introduction to electronic, optical, and transport properties of conducting polymers fullerene-polymer composites; supramolecular photophysics of photovoltaic devices of fullerene-conjugated polymer composites; optical studies of covalently linked C60 solids; first principles molecular dynamical studies; covalent bonding between fullerenes; polymerized fullerite structures; polymerization of charged C60 molecules; electronic structures and optical excitations in C60-polymers; superconductivity of fullerene-conducting polymer composites doped by alkali metals; soliton-state syntheses of fullerene-based pendant, pearl chain, and dendritic polymers.
