Fullerene dimers have attracted extensive attention due to their unique structures and fascinating properties. Hundreds of fullerene dimers have been isolated so far, including the singly-bonded fullerene dimers, fullerene dimers connected by electroactive bridges, all-carbon fullerene dimers and unsymmetrical dimers, etc. These new molecular systems have potential applications in the area of artificial photosynthesis, photoelectronic device and supramolecular chemistry. Based on the different structure types, various fullerene dimers reported are summarized and classified in this review. Furthermore, the electrochemistry property of the dimers is discussed and the research trend of this area is also prospected.

Key words: fullerene, dimer, electrochemistry
