In this work, two parametric L-Systems have been introduced to generate the figures of two series of nanostructures. These series consist of different spherical fullerenes with various number of carbon atoms. By specifying a parameter in each series a spherical fullerene can be determined. The members of the first series are C60 , C240 , C540 , C940 ,… which can be produced by applying parameter n=0, 1, 2, 3, … on the first parametric L-system. In the same manner, the second parametric L-system can produce the figures of C80 , C180 , C320 ,… by applying parameter n=0, 1, 2, etc.
