Fullerene C60 is a nanoparticle being actively investigated for possible applications in biology and medicine since, owing to its lipophilicity, it should be able to be incorporated in or to permeate across a cellular membrane. Once exposing cells to such nanoparticles, the problem becomes how to assess the actual presence of fullerene in cells. Here we used a home-made broadband near-field scanning microwave microscope, in both time and frequency domains, and a commercial scanning capacitance… CONTINUE READING
