As discussed in Sect.  1.3.3, one approach to designing fullerene replacements is to take small molecules based on fullerene fragments, with the aim of reproducing the large electron affinity properties and molecular curvature of fullerenes but using simpler and more easily functionalised structures. Various polycyclic aromatic and heteroaromatic hydrocarbon cores have been investigated to this end
