Abstract  

The paper demonstrates that water insoluble pristine C60 can be easily solubilized by a mechanochemical solid-solid reaction in a special ball mill with g-cyclodextrin or calix-[8]-arene. It also shows that nuclear recoil after neutron capture provides a new means for the preparation of endohedral radiofullerenes by nuclear implosion. The radiofullerenes built by mechanochemically activated supramolecular reactions are soluble in water and can be used in biomedical and toxicological studies.

Abstract  

Nuclear and radiochemistry offers special and attractive possibilities for exploring the fascinating world of closed-shell carbon cages called fullerenes. This review presents a panoramic view on the use of radioactivity, nuclear irradiation and instrumental nuclear techniques in the elucidation of the structure and composition of fullerenes and their compounds.

Abstract  

The rate of some heterogeneous isotopic exchange reactions can be enhanced by the simultaneous hydration of the solid participating in the exchange process. The results presented here show that the concomitant hydration of anhydrous sodium sulphate enhances the Na2SO422Na+ isotopic exchange reaction in a water-acetone medium. The reaction rate is further enhanced by creating a controlled number of vacancies in the crystal lattice of sodium sulphate by doping.
