'Cloaked' carbon nanotubes become non-toxic

Abstract:
A way to cloak carbon nanotubes, making them both non-toxic and highly customisable, has been revealed. It marks a step towards using nanotubes in biological research and medicine. ... bare nanotubes are toxic, triggering the death of cells that they touch. To deal with this problem, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, US, created rod-shaped synthetic polymers that mimic molecules found naturally on the outer surface of the body's cells.
