Self-Assembling Supramolecular Nanostructures from a C(60) Derivative: Nanorods and Vesicles.

Abstract

Simple modification of solution conditions provides facile access to supramolecular fullerene nanostructures. The fullerene derivative shown self-assembles to give nanorods or vesicles. The nanorods have diameters of 10-250 nm, depending on the counterion, and lengths greater than 70 µm. If ultrasonication is used, no nanorods form, but vesicles result… (More)
