In this paper, two types of fullerene C60 solutions are compared with respect to their structural features and toxic properties. The results are discussed in terms of their potential in medical and biological applications. The fullerene cluster state at the nanoscale in these solutions is analyzed by small-angle neutron scattering. Experiments on the cytotoxicity of these systems on Chinese-hamster V-79 cells showed no toxic effects of the solutions.
