Carbon has a wide range of transport properties which are strongly dependent on the graphitic (sp(2)) to tetrahedral (Sp(3)) carbon bonding ratio, Fullerenes comprise the third class of pure carbon, after diamond and graphite. The conductivity of van der Waals fullerene solids is governed by a thermal activation mechanism. Polymerization modifies the band structure with a decrease of activation energy. At certain conditions a transition to a metallic behavior is observed experimentally. Polymerization of fullerenes also results in a transition from diamagnetic to paramagnetic behavior.
