Buckyballs Damage Cell Membranes

Abstract:
Colvin and colleagues say this work demonstrates a strategy for enhancing fullerene toxicity for use as a bactericide or cancer therapeutic. However, they note that as C60 finds widespread use in consumer products, it will be important to consider the effects that unintentional generation of nano- C60 may have on the environment.
