Fullerenes are condensed ring aromatic compounds with extended pi systems; they have unique cage structures. Current studies suggest that several fullerene derivatives have neuroprotective effects, and it is expected that fullerenes will be useful in drug delivery system and novel medical devices targeting the brain. However, little is known about the… CONTINUE READING
