C60 and C70 can be solubilized into water with poly(vinylpyrrolidone)(PVP) and the aqueous solutions of C60 and C70 are applied to haemolysis test. 
Solubilization of [60]Fullerene in Water by Aquatic Humic Substances
The solubilization of [60]fullerene (C60) in water in the presence of aquatic humic substances (HSs) was investigated by means of a batch method. The apparent water solubility of C60 in the presenc...
Water-soluble complex formation of fullerenes with a biocompatible polymer
Fullerenes (C60 and C70) and water-soluble poly(2-methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine) (PMPC) were mixed by physical means to prepare water-soluble fullerene/PMPC complexes. PMPC can solubilizeExpand
Synthesis and properties of water-soluble derivatives of fullerene C60
Procedures for synthesized of water-soluble forms of fullerene C60 and its derivatives were developed.
Solubilization of fullerene into water with fluoroalkyl end-capped amphiphilic oligomers-novel fluorescence properties.
Interestingly, the aqueous solutions of fullerene were applicable to fluorescence analyses and in these fluorinated oligomers, fluoroalkyl end-capped acryloylmorpholine oligomers were more effective in solubilizing fullerenes into water. Expand
Water-soluble C60- and C70-PVP polymers for biomaterials with efficient (1)O2 generation.
Highly water-soluble fullerene polymers with significantly high molecular weight and with efficient (1)O2 generation were obtained by a simple direct free-radical copolymerization of N-vinylpyrrolidone and intact C60 or C70 as a radical-capping agent. Expand
Photoprotective effects of inclusion complexes of fullerenes with polyvinylpyrrolidone
The outermost surface of the body is covered by the stratum corneum, which is critical for proper skin barrier function. We investigated photoprotective effects of inclusion complexes of fullerenesExpand
A highly water-soluble C60-NVP copolymer: a potential material for photodynamic therapy.
Water-soluble C60 polymers, which have the highest solubility of fullerene reported to date (7.8 mM of C60 in water), were prepared via copolymerization, and showed significant visible light-inducedExpand
Efficient photocleavage of DNA utilising water-soluble lipid membrane-incorporated [60]fullerenes prepared using a [60]fullerene exchange method.
Various types of lipid membrane-incorporated C60 with high C60 concentrations can be prepared easily in several hours using the C60 exchange method and the photocleaving activity of cationic lipidExpand
pH-Responsive Nanogels Containing Fullerenes: Synthesis via a Fullerene Exchange Method and Photoactivity
Fullerenes solubilized by γ-cyclodextrins (γ-CDx) were efficiently transferred to pH-responsive nanogels when they existed in the swollen state below a critical swelling pH. The fullerene molecules...
Water-soluble [60]fullerene compositions with carbohydrates
Water-soluble compositions of [60]fullerene with carbohydrates were mechanochemically synthesised and investigated by UV-VIS and solid-state high-resolution 13C NMR spectroscopy.


Photoinduced biochemical activity of fullerene carboxylic acid
Here we report the preparation of a water-miscible fullerene carboxylic acid (2) and its biological activity-cytotoxicity and G-selective DNA cleaving ability. What is truly remarkable is that theExpand
