Fulleranes are a special class of carbon molecules derived from fullerenes whose double bonds are partially or at least theoretically fully saturated by hydrogen. The hydrogenation changes the chemical properties of fullerenes which can become susceptible to substitution reactions as opposed to addition reactions to the double bonds (present in common fullerenes). One of the most intriguing aspects of fulleranes is the fact that they have been thought to exist in the interstellar medium or even in certain circumstellar media.

"Fulleranes: The Hydrogenated Fullerenes" presents the state of the art research, synthesis and properties of these molecules.This book also includes astrophysicists' and astrochemists' expectations regarding the presence of these molecules in space.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Buch hydrogenation was one of the very first reactions of fullerenes, reported by Haufler, Smalley, and numerous co workers in 1990. . the reader gets an overview of the role of fulleranes and related carbon nanostructures in absorption lines and hydrogen formation in the interstellar medium . . Overall, this book is a worthwhile investment for individuals or libraries who want a quick look at the state of the art of hydrogenated fullerenes." (John P. Selegue, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 133, 2011)
