The syntheses and characterization of fullerene hydrides prepared from C60 and C70 are reviewed. Methods of isolation and characterization are discussed, particularly MS and NMR, including 3He nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The higher hydrides are discussed in terms of novel structural features and their unusual spectroscopic properties.
