[en] Star-shaped polymers with a fullerene (C-60) Core and an unexpanded structure were successfully prepared by reaction Of C60 with amino end-capped polyesters HxC60(NHPCLn)(x) and polyethers HxC60(NHPEG(n))(x), respectively. Upon irradiation of these C-60-derivatives, a large amount of singlet oxygen was released. Compared to previously synthesized star-shaped azafulleroids with an expanded structure, the photosensitivity of HxC60(NHPCLn)(x) is higher as assessed by a higher production of singlet oxygen. The cytotoxicity of the photoactive water-soluble HxC60(NHPEG(n))(x) derivatives was tested against THP-1 cells and expressed in terms of cell viability. Moreover, they were processed as micro-/nanosized fibers by electrospinning, which however required the addition of poly(F-caprolactone) (PCL). The diameter distribution of the fibers was trimodal, where the fraction with the 270 nm average diameter was the major population. Because of their photoactivity, the herein reported star-shaped C-60-derivatives are promising candidates for photodynamic cancer therapy and treatment of multidrug resistant pathogens.
