Nanotube toxicity linked to functionalization

Abstract:
Researchers from Rice University, US, have found that the toxicity of water-soluble carbon nanotubes to human skin cells decreased as the functionalization of the tubes increased. The results are similar to the team's findings for fullerene molecules last year, although the nanotubes were generally less toxic than the fullerenes.
