Functionalization of Carbon Nanotubes
Functionalization is defined as the modification of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in which the preferred functional group drug molecule where the desired drug molecule or a functional group is introduced over the CNTs wall for several applications (Lay et al., Expert Rev Med Devices 8:561–566, 2011).
