Simulation study of noncovalent hybridization of carbon nanotubes by single-stranded DNA in water.


Recent discovery that single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) binds to carbon nanotubes with high affinity to form soluble hybrids has received great attention as a promising approach to solving the long-standing problem of nanotube solubilization and separation. The mechanism of this process, including the nature of the DNA-nanotube interactions and the molecular… (More)
