Nanoencapsulation of Fullerene by a Novel Sugar-Based Polymer
Fullerene has been nanoencapsulated by the formation of an inclusion complex with a -cyclodextrin-containing lactose copolymer. The cyclodextrin polymer was synthesized by reaction of -cyclodextrin chlorotriazine with -lactose, and the polymer was highly soluble in water. Encapsulation of the carbon allotrope was achieved by forming a stable inclusion complex between the water-soluble cyclodextrin and fullerene by a new synthetic procedure. Preliminary studies indicate that this complex has potential for biomedical applications because of its radical scavenging properties.
