Abstract

Because of the insolubility of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), chemical, biochemical, biological and medical applications using these materials have been rather limited. Soluble carbon nanotubes are of interest as nanomaterials in such fields. In this comprehensive paper, we describe i) strategies for the individual solubilization of CNT, especially for single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in water or organic solvents and ii) the fundamental applications of the solubilized CNT.
