The photophysical properties of fullerenes are selectively reviewed, with an em- phasis on fluorescence. It is shown that fullerenes display several unusual photophysical properties, such as their fluorescence anisotropy, and also that they can be used for a more complete understanding of general photophysical processes like charge-transfer complexation and the heavy-atom effect. In spite of the work already carried out, know- ledge of the photophysics of fullerenes and derivatives is still incomplete, and much remains to be done in this area.
