The transfer of fullerene from its solution in chloroform to aqueous medium was carried out by water-soluble polymer – hydroxyethyl cellulose (HOEC). hydroxyethyl cellulose films containing fullerene were obtained. The methods of UV- and IR-spectroscopy were used to study the interaction of fullerene with HOEC in the water – chloroform – HOEC – C60 system and in fullerene-containing polymer. The formation of complexes of C60 with HOEC with participation of chloroform molecules was established. Antimicrobial action of the nanocomposites obtained was detected.

Keywords: hydroxyethyl cellulose, fullerene, nanocomposites, antimicrobic action
