Abstract Here, we present the first report on the design, synthesis, and characterization of a C{sub 60}-bearing triple-chain lipid 1. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), UV-vis and FT-IR spectroscopies, and X-ray studies have revealed the cast films of 1 form a highly oriented multibilayer structure and possess phase transitions which influence fullerene electronic properties. In conclusion, we have demonstrated that lipid 1 forms multibilayer membrane films which possess main and subphase transitions, and the subtransition regulates electronic properties of the fullerene. The present study opens possibilities for development of methods for the regulation of physical and physicochemical properties of fullerenes based on the nature of self-organized lipid bilayer membranes. 10 refs., 3 figs.
