Thus far, development of applications of fullerenes in biology has been hampered by the poor water solubility of fullerenes. In spite of such concerns, fullerenes have proved useful for a wide variety of biological applications. As derivatized and underivatized fullerenes continue to become increasingly available, additional applications and further development of those discussed in this article will invariably follow.
