Hydrophilic endohedral 133Xe-fullerenols, [ 133Xe@C60(OH)x and 133Xe@C 70(OH)x], were synthesized from hydrophobic endohedral 133Xe-fullerenes. The yield of endohedral 133Xe- fullerenols extracted in water was about 40% and 23% for C60 and C70, respectively. The products stored in 0.9% NaCl solution at 20°C were stable enough to be used in nuclear medicine.
