Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and ultrashort SWCNTs (US-SWCNTs) were functionalized with derivatives of the phenolic antioxidant, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). By using the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) assay, the oxygen radical scavenging ability of the SWCNT antioxidants is nearly 40 times greater than that of the radioprotective dendritic fullerene, DF-1. In addition, ORAC results revealed two divergent trends in the antioxidant potential of SWCNTs, depending on the… CONTINUE READING
