Abstract—A new series of bis-functionalized fullerene C60 derivatives bearing two or more solubilizing chains have been evaluated for their activity against HIV-1 and HIV-2strains. Some of the compounds show activity against HIV-1 type in the low micromolar range. The effect of the positions of the addends on the C60 nucleus has been investigated, indicating that only trans-2isomers possess promising activity. The presence of a quaternary pyrrolidinium nitrogen is essential to increase solubility.
