Product Code: CNB-8-TNFOL
Polyhydroxylated fullerenes, or fullerenols, take a special place in a relatively small group of water-soluble fullerene derivatives. The fullerenols have a relatively simple structure, and it is possible to change their solubility from almost zero up to about 60 g/L at room temperature by increasing the number of hydroxyl groups. They are characterized by high adhesion to metals and semiconductors, form thin films on their surfaces, and thereby can be used in micro- and optoelectronics. On the other hand, fullerenols improve mechanical properties of materials and are applied as modifiers of concretes and paints. The most important are probably medical applications of fullerenols. Their antioxidative properties and free-radical scavenging effects have been known for more than 20 years.
