Nanotubes and buckyballs represent novel substrates for gas adsorption. This situation has attracted significant experimental and theoretical attention, resulting in a wide variety of intriguing behaviors, including phases of unconventional effective dimensionality. This article reviews this field. Many of the unusual predictions have yet to be tested. In some cases, heterogeneity plays a significant role in actual experiments. This research area therefore presents many unanswered questions of fundamental significance.
