Double-Walled Carbon Nanotubes as Nanosyringes

Hilder, Tamsyn; Hill, James M


Functionalized nanoparticles and nanotubes may be able to target specific cells, become ingested and then release their contents in response to a chemical trigger. An alternative delivery mechanism, which may offer advantages in drug delivery is the use of a nanosyringe which pierces the cell membrane and injects molecules such as DNA or anticancer drugs directly into the cell. Here, we propose the use of double-walled carbon nanotubes as nanosyringes. By way of illustration we investigate the...[Show more]
