Ciofani, Gianni; Raffa, Vittoria; Yu, Jun X; Chen, Ying; Obata, Yasuke; Takeoke, Shinji; Menciassi, Arianna; Cuschierri, Alfred


Whereas several biomedical applications of carbon nanotubes have been proposed, the use of boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) in this field has been largely unexplored despite their unique and potentially useful properties. Our group has recently initiated an experimental program aimed at the exploration of the interactions between BNNTs and living cells. In the present paper, we report on the magnetic properties of BNNTs containing Fe catalysts which confirm the feasibility for their use as...[Show more]
