Covalently-linked adducts of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with biomolecules have been fabricated. Results are presented here for DNA-SWNT and for biotin-SWNT adducts. DNA-SWNT adducts are shown to be biochemically accessible and to exhibit high selectivity, favoring hybridization with complementary vs. non-complementary DNA sequences. Biotin-SWNT adducts were also prepared and used to direct the assembly of nanotubes onto a biotinylated glass surface.
