Polyhydroxylated C60 As An Hypercross-Linking Agent

Abstract

Polyhydroxylated fullerene derivatives (fullerenols) were utilized as an efficient hypercross-linking agent for the synthesis of elastic poly(tetramethylene oxide)-based Polyurethane networks with excellent thermal mechanical properties. Polyhydroxylated fullerenes were synthesized from the hydrolysis of polycyclosulfated fullerene derivatives in the presence of water at 85–90 °C or in aqueous NaOH solution at ambient temperature.
