Effect of Polystyrene/Fullerene Composites on the Lipid Peroxidation in Blood Serum

Pure polystyrene films and polystyrene films filled with fullerenes (C60+C70 mix) were fabricated by the solution cast method. Effect of polystyrene/fullerene composite on free-radical processes in blood serum has been investigated in vitro. The parameters of lipid peroxidation in native serum after adding the composite films were determined by a chemiluminescent analysis and spectrophotometry. It was revealed that fullerene-containing nanocomposites can manifest antioxidant activity in blood serum
