Carbon nanotubes increase the electrical conductivity of fibroblast-seeded collagen hydrogels.


Carbon nanotubes are attractive as additives in fiber-reinforced composites due to their high aspect ratio, strength and electrical conductivity. In the present study, solubilized collagen Type I was polymerized in the presence of dispersed single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) and human dermal fibroblast cells (HDF) to produce collagen-SWNT composite… (More)
