From ancient times naftalan is used to treat various diseases both of animals and of humans. The positive use of fullerenes in medicine, pharmacology and perfumery makes them an attractive and promising object of extensive research. The combination of fullerenes and naftalan oil together in one compound, affecting positively on the vital functions of the human body, can bring the unexpected results. The solubility of fullerenes in naftalan oil may be the key moment in the synthesis of products of such kind. A detailed study focused on the elucidation of the fullerenes solubility in naftalans has been presented in this chapter: (1) determination of the solubility of fullerite in naftalan; (2) definition of the regions of naftalan transmission in toluene; (3) measurement of fullerenes solutions spectra in naftalan; and (4) comparison of the measured spectra of fullerene solutions in naftalan and toluene.
