Dynamic behaviour of giant unilamellar vesicles induced by the uptake of [70]fullerene.

To obtain direct evidence for the fullerene-exchange reactions from the γ-cyclodextrin cavities to the lipid membranes following the addition of a C70·γ-cyclodextrin complex, we monitored the dynamic behaviours of the giant unilamellar vesicles. A number of C70 aggregates generated in the lipid membranes moved about vigorously.
