The processes of fullerene cluster formation and growth in non-polar solvents are described basing on the numerical solutions of kinetic equations of nucleation theory. The liquid drop model and the limited growth model are analyzed. For supersaturated solutions it is shown, that the model of limited growth is an adequate model and can qualitatively describe the experimental data. The model of fullerene dissolution processes is proposed.
