Recent results from single crystal X-ray diffraction studies of endohedral fullerenes will be presented.  Attention will be focuse on examples of cocrystallization and their utility in determineation of endohedral structure and the nature of the interactions within cocrystals.  Additional results on functionalized endoehdrals will be presented to show some unprecedented transformations of the addends.
