Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have emerged as fascinating materials, exhibiting promising potential in receptor based targeting owing to their unique physicochemical properties (cell membrane penetration, high surface area and drug payload, biocompatibility, easy surface modification, photoluminescence property, and non-immunogenicity etc). The hydrophilicity, a major constrain associated with the first generation of CNTs i.e. pristine CNTs, could be overcome using functionalization techniques. In… CONTINUE READING
