Fullerenes - Behaviour

Fullerene agglomerates are robust and, when in contact, can be taken up by different types of cells.

Once in the bloodstream, fullerenes (C60) can spread in the entire body and pass on to the offspring during pregnancy or by lactation.

Although they consist solely of a carbon framework, there are varieties of different fullerenes, which are mainly constituted by modifications of the particle surface. These modifications affect the properties of the fullerenes and thus also their environmental behaviour, so that no generally valid statements can be made e.g. regarding their mobility.
