About this book

Due to their rare combination of high chemical stability, exceptional optical and electrical properties, high surface-to-volume ratio, and high aspect ratio, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have made an enormous impact on materials science, molecular biology, biomedicine, and bioanalytical chemistry. Carbon Nanotubes: Methods and Protocols provides reliable, consistent protocols on the application of CNTs in molecular biology-related fields. These are of vital importance, as the commercially available CNTs differ in purity, agglomeration state, as well as length and diameter distribution, all of which have a profound influence on  the dispersability  and surface properties of the tubes. The volume contains detailed sections on functionalization, toxicity, trafficking, scaffolds, and biosensors, provided by expert researchers from various fields. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and cutting-edge, Carbon Nanotubes: Methods and Protocols serves to contribute to the achievement of common standards and helps researchers to avoid discrepancies in future biology-related CNT studies.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“A comprehensive introduction to the application of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in the life-sciences. … it also provides detailed step-by-step procedures and complete lists of the reagents and materials required to carry out the applications introduced. … ‘Carbon Nanotubes: Methods and Protocols’ is an indispensable tool for researchers looking for a comprehensive summary of the state-of-the-art of applications of CNTs. … a valuable tool both for experts and for readers who intend to step into the fascinating world of CNT applications in biology and medicine.”­­­ (Frank Schleifenbaum, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 399, October, 2010)
