Fullerene polymers represent a new class of carbon materials for potential hydrogen storage applications. Polyfullerene polymers were obtained by covalently linking fullerene molecules in photochemical reactions. Fullerene polymers were also prepared in free radical reactions of fullerene with radical initiator benzoyl peroxide. The polymeric fullerene materials were hydrogenated under Birch reduction conditions. The hydrides, which contain ≈3.5% (wt/wt) of hydrogen, were characterized by use of gel permeation chromatography, NMR, FT-IR, and elemental analysis. The results are compared with those of monomeric fullerene hydrides.
