C(60), vitamin E, and three C(60) derivatives (polar 1 and water-soluble C(3)/D(3)C(60)s) were examined for their antioxidant effects on prevention of lipid peroxidation induced by superoxide and hydroxyl radicals. The protection effect on lipid peroxidation was found to be in the sequence: C(60) >/= vitamin E > 1 > none, for liposoluble antioxidants, and C(3)C(60) >> D(3)C(60) > none, for water-soluble ones. Fluorescence quenching of PyCH(2)COOH (Py = pyrene) by both C(3)- and D(3)C(60)s shows… CONTINUE READING
