The preparations of nC60 through water directly and toluene or THF indirectly represent all possible dispersal routes of fullerene particles in aquatic ennvironemnts. These different dispersal routes may result in different toxicity on microorganisms such as inactivation or inhibition. No studies on comparison of all the three preparation methods are found in the literature. Therefore, this study was to investigate the impacts of these three dispersal methods on the growth of E. coli.
