Nano-materials found ways into the aquatic environment, causing concern regarding its potential toxicity to humans. Stable colloidal nano-C60 (nC60) aggregates and its influence on hydroxyl radicals (·OH) under variable conditions was the main component for this study. Analysis showed differences in nC60's properties and the outside media having an effect on the production of OH. Ultraviolet-A irradiation or constant stirring for a longer reaction time eventually led to ·OH production; dependent on their exact composition. Studies support that nC60 aggregates physiochemical properties and surrounding environment and its condition are dependent in determining toxicity.
