We report the first successful encapsulation of pristine fullerene C70 in polymer nanoparticles with very low size polydispersity. We obtained water-dispersed polystyrene (PS) nanoparticles with diameters from 60 nm to 190 nm using a miniemulsion polymerization technique. Contrarily to pristine fullerenes, which are insoluble in most solvents and materials, the nanoparticles containing fullerene C70 (PS-C70) are stable in water and can be easily incorporated in different materials. When blended… Expand
