The main purpose of this study is a better comprehension of the non-bonded interaction between an anticancer drug Ciclopirox and carbon nanotube [CNT(6,6-6)]. The electronic structure and adsorption properties of the molecule Ciclopirox over the surface of CNT were theoretically studied in the solvent phase at the B3LYP/6-31G* level of theory for the first time. The electronic spectra of the Ciclopirox drug, CNT(6,6-6) and complex CNT(6,6-6)/Ciclopirox in solvent water were calculated by time dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) for the investigation of adsorption effect. The non-bonded interaction effects of the Ciclopirox drug with CNT(6,6-6) on the chemical shift tensors and natural charge have been also detected. According to the natural bond orbital (NBO) results, the molecule Ciclopirox and CNT(6,6-6) play as both electron donor and acceptor at the complex CNT(6,6-6)/Ciclopirox. On the other hand, the charge transfer is occurred between the bonding, antibonding or nonbonding orbitals in two molecules drug and CNT. As a consequence, CNT(6,6-6) can be considered as a drug delivery system for the transportation of Ciclopirox as anticancer drug within the biological systems.
