Stabilisation of carbon nanotube suspensions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in these terms: nanotechnology and nanomaterials. Nanotechnology includes applied science through the use of Nanomaterials, among which Carbon Nanotubes represent a fascinating example. In particular, there has been growing attention on carbon naotubes due to their promising applications in several biomedical fields including cancer and gene therapy, vaccines and tissue engineering. At the same time, they have shown some evidence of hazardous effects that might undermine their widespread use in nanomedicine. Therefore, this book represents a critical evaluation of the most recent discoveries on carbon nanotubes, together with a cautious description of their impact on personal health and environmental pollution. It also offers an overview on the main research groups around the world, which have been focusing their efforts on the exploitation of this intriguing material, with the purpose of inspiring young scientists to follow their pathway.
