Results of investigation into the electrochemical properties of fullerene and their derivatives in solid state will be reviewed. These systems can be divided into three groups:
(i) polycrystalline thin layers
(ii) non-crystalline films
(iii) fullerene based polymers.
Special emphasis will be placed on the electrochemistry of fullerene-based polymers. Several methods for the electrochemical polymerization of fullerene systems will be described. The properties of fullerene containing polymers will be discussed. Resent results of fullerene-based "double cables" formation and the properties of these systems will be presented
