Functionalized carbon nanotubes for potential medicinal applications

Download Type: Adobe PDF

This review focuses on the progress of the functionalizations of CNTs, which are the preconditions for CNT applications in medicine, the potential applications of CNTs in the treatment of intractable issues in medicine and the associated potential risks of CNT applications in nanomedicine.

Functionalized carbon nanotubes display unique properties that enable a variety of medicinal applications, including the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, infectious diseases and central nervous system disorders, and applications in tissue engineering. These potential applications are particularly encouraged by their ability to penetrate biological membranes and relatively low toxicity.
