Carbon Nanostructures for Nanomedicine
Carbon nanostructures (CNSs) and, more specifically, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) play an important role in the “Room at the Bottom”. They are one of the more promising nanomaterials in molecular electronics, field-effect transistors, due to their uncommonly combined properties, such as mechanical and electrical properties, but they are also emerging building blocks in biomedicine as innovative materials for neuroscience, drug delivery, cancer therapy, and biomaterials. The chemical functionalization is a fundamental step in this direction as it renders these novel chemical structures easier to handle and compatible with physiological media. Within this contribution, we will explore this rather new research field.
