Fullerene-containing liposomes with high photosensitization ability were prepared. Disaggregated fullerenes were efficiently injected into the bilayer of liposomes by a phototriggered molecular exchange reaction. These liposomes showed far higher photoreactivity than liposomes thermally produced by heating and microwave irradiation. This result indicates(More)
We have evaluated the photodynamic activities of C60 derivative·γ-cyclodextrin (γ-CDx) complexes and demonstrated that they were significantly higher than those of the pristine C60 and C70·γ-CDx complexes under photoirradiation at long wavelengths (610-720 nm), which represent the optimal wavelengths for photodynamic therapy (PDT). In particular, the(More)
A new molecular design of fullerene derivatives exhibiting trigger-responsive self-aggregation in organic solvents has been established. Calix[4]arene was covalently connected with fullerene in order to apply host-guest interaction to the aggregation control. The self-assembly behaviour was studied in organic solvents by UV-vis absorption spectroscopy,(More)
