Carbon nanotubes as multifunctional biological transporters and near-infrared agents for selective cancer cell destruction.
Biological systems are known to be highly transparent to 700- to 1,100-nm near-infrared (NIR) light. It is shown here that the strong optical absorbance of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) inExpand
