Synthesis, Aggregate Structure and Electrochemical Properties of a Water-Soluble Fullerene-Bearing Ammonium Amphiphile
A water-soluble C<SUB>60</SUB>-terminating ammonium surfactant, <B>1</B>, was synthesized. Electron microscopy revealed that <B>1</B> forms a fibrous aggregate in an aqueous solution. Electronic interaction between the fullerene moieties in <B>1</B> in the aqueous solution was observed. Electrochemistry for <B>1</B> aqueous solutions was found to be quite different from that of <B>1</B> in the film states.
