Abstract

Fullerols of C60 and of C70 [C60(OH)n, C70(OH)m], water-soluble fullerene derivatives, unlike some other fullerene derivatives (such as C60 (C4H6O), C60 (C3H7N) and C60 [C(COOEt)2]x), do not result in excited triplet state but in ionization via monophotonic process in aqueous solutions with 248 nm laser. The quantum yields of formation of hydrated electron (Φe ) are determined to be 0.08 and 0.11 for fullerols of C60 and of C70 respectively at room temperature (ca. 15°C) with KI solution used as reference. By laser flash photolysis and oxidation of sulfate radical anion SO4 , the fullerol radical cation or neutral radical of C60 is confirmed to be existent and the transient absorption spectra of fullerol radical cation of C70 are observed for the first time.
