A new amphiphilic hexasubstituted fullerene bearing 10 cholesterol units and a polar head made of two carboxylic acid functions has been prepared and its aptitude to film forming (Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett) evaluated. The results show that this amphiphile has the prerequisite qualities for its incorporation into the cellular membranes of living organisms. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
