Lipid-membrane-incorporating C(60) and C(70) (LMIC(60) and LMIC(70)) were prepared by the fullerene-exchange reaction from the γ-cyclodextrin cavity to vesicles (we call this method the "exchange method"). An advantage of this method is that the ratios of [C(60)]/[lipids] and [C(70)]/[lipids] can be arbitrarily controlled by adjusting the ratios of the fullerenes and liposome. The maximum ratio (30 mol%) obtained was approximately 14 and 100 times higher than those achieved for LMIC(60) and… CONTINUE READING
