An analysis of the structure of carbon nanotubesAuthor(s): Jennifer Stewart
Allotropes of carbon with a length-to-diameter ratio greater than one million are known as carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Arc discharge, laser ablation, and chemical vapour deposition are a few of the methods that have been developed to produce nanotubes in large quantities. Recent developments have shown the revolutionary potential of nanoparticles, particularly in the fields of biomedical imaging, drug delivery, bio sensing, and the creation of useful nanocomposites. To effectively interface proteins with nanomaterials for these applications, new techniques are constantly being developed.
