Facile synthesis of highly water-soluble fullerenes more than half-covered by hydroxyl groups

Share:

Using a novel hydrogen peroxide heating method, we synthesized milky white, water-soluble polyhydroxylated fullerenes (fullerenols) with 36-40 hydroxyl groups (estimated average) along with 8-9 secondary bound water molecules. The fullerenols exhibited high water solubility up to 58.9 mg/mL in a neutral (pH = 7) condition. Dynamic light scattering analysis showed a high dispersion property, to give a narrow particle size distribution within 0.7-2.0 nm.
