The physical properties that occurs in fullerene molecules adsorbed on substrates were analyzed. The possible net electron charge transfer occurring from the substrate to the first-layer fullerene molecules are discussed in detail. A dipole layer at the interface and in turn a dipole field above the substrate were observed.
