Bradley, D.
May 1992
New Scientist;5/9/92, Vol. 134 Issue 1820, p15
Reports on research by scientists at the Chalmers University of Technology in Goteborg, Sweden who have made fullerenes water-soluble. Description of the technique; Water fullerenes will probably react differently to the way they would in organic solvents.
