A macroscopic quantity of quasi-spherical fullerene-like shells (see Figure) that encapsulate iron nanoparticles containing radioisotope Tc-99m are prepared for the first time. The nanocomposite is acid-non-leachable, retaining radioactivity at an extremely high level. This method will enable rigorous studies of what are currently theoretical descriptions of nanometer-scale medicinal delivery vehicles for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
