Title : Water Soluble Nanocarbon Materials: A Panacea for All?

Abstract :

Functionalization (fullerenes, CNTs & grapheme) helps overcome the limitation of nanocarbon materials, making them soluble. Recently the emphasis has shifted to make water soluble Fullerenes (FWS). Much work has been documented showing the use of FWS in treating cancer (e.g. breast cancer), tumors, arthritis, Parkinson’s, Influenzas & HIV-AIDS. Even an aqueous nasal spray to combat Alzheimer’s has been advocated. A recent US patent shows that FWS is a powerful Radical Oxygen Scavenger (ROS) and thus shows anti-oxidant activity. FWS have been used in X-ray imaging, as MRI Contrast Agents (MRI-CA), to make solar cells and are expected to help produce nano-devices and biosensors.
