Fullerenes are polyhedral carbon structures composed of around 60 to 80 carbon atoms in pentagon and hexagon configuration. Fullerene C60 (buckminsterfullerene) molecule is the most common fullerene with a spherical structure. Fullerene C70 has a short axis diameter of 0.7 nm like C60, but its long axis diameter is 0.8 nm, making its shape like a rugby ball. Fullerenes have a spherical cage-like structure and have a diameter of about 1 nm and thus can be defined as a nanomaterial. Fullerene C60 is considered as the building block of nanotechnology (5). Due to its nanodimensions (< 100 nm), C60 is being considered for drug delivery and recently within a number of cosmetic products, such as face creams.
