In section 6. Interstellar and circumstellar matter
Interstellar fullerene compounds and diffuse interstellar bands
Everything you ever wanted (or needed) to know about astronomical aspects of fullereness but were afraid to ask. The author presents a critical review of the relevant physiochemical and spectroscopic properties of this now identified ubiquitous component of the interstellar dust population. It also gives an overview of possibly present species and how they can be distinguished. A must-read for those seeking a single point of entry into a vast, complex literature.
