Paper Title:
The Nanoscience of Fullerenes
  Abstract

A brief review of fascinating properties of fullerene is presented on the basis of the concept of effectively non-paired electrons. A versatile chemistry of fullerenes follows from the regioselectivity of their atoms and the uniqueness of donor-acceptor abilities. Computational synthesis of the fullerene derivatives is discussed. Applications of the basic concepts to medicinal applications of fullerenes as well as their magnetic properties and ability to form technomimetic species are considered.
