7_03/2012Cover Picture: Advantages and Potential of Lipid-Membrane-Incorporating Fullerenes Prepared by the Fullerene-Exchange Method (Chem. Asian J. 3/2012)

Artificial cell membrane (lipid membrane)-incorporating C60 and C70 (LMIC60 and LMIC70) were prepared by using the fullerene (= egg yolk in the picture) exchange reaction from the cyclodextrin cavity (= eggshell in the picture) to the membrane. Advantages of this method reported by Atsushi Ikeda et al. in their Full Paper on page 605 ff. are that the maximum ratio of [C60 or C70]/[lipids] and the stabilities and photodynamic activities of LMIC60 and LMIC70 solutions were much higher than those prepared by the classical method.
