Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Carbon nanotubes(CNT) have been in the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology. However, because of the insolubility of nanotubes in water, chemical, biochemical, and biological approaches using these materials have been limited. Soluble CNTs in water is of interests since they will open the door in such fields. In this report, we examined the effects of spermine toward the solubilization of SWNTs using DNA.
