    The effect of CoSALEN on anti-oxidative properties of fullerene C60 in the presence of O2 in cumene was investigated. A comparison was made between the role of the CoSALEN as a catalyst in the C60 oxidation and oxidation in the presence of an initiator, i.e., AIBN. A mechanism is proposed for the catalytic role of CoSALEN in oxidation of C60. Oxidation of octadecylaminofullerene C60 at the same conditions reveals that oxidation could be a result of hydroperoxidation of the unreacted sites of C60. We conclude that C60 as well as its aminoderivatives enhance the efficiency of CoSALEN in the oxidation of cumene due to their radical scavenging property of their unreacted double-bond sites. ©...
