Abstract

Two reversible one-electron transfers are observed for an electrode device made from C60 and an artificial lipid (see schematic drawing). Cyclic voltammetric studies reveal that the redox couples are unchanged even after 50 cycles, thus indicating that the (C60 radical monoanion and the C60 dianion generated in aqueous solution are very stable.
