The appealing structure of fullerene, its electrochemical and photophysical properties have attracted the interest of the scientists to study the applications of C60 and its derivatives in different fields, including the biological and biomedical domains. Up to now, no clinical uses have been achieved but, despite this, there is still room for successfully applications of fullerenes in medicine and biology.
