Experimental Determination of Optimum Parameters of Technological Creation of Bionanocomposites Based on the Interaction Between the Aliphatic Aminoacids and Carbon Nanotubes

This paper studies the interaction between biological molecules and novel nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes (CNT). The latter plays a crucial role in developing novel types of miniature devices for biological purposes. We also investigate the immobilization behavior of aminoacids in the multi-wall carbon nanotubes to create functional aminocid/CNT conjugates. Furthermore, we use spectrophotometric methods. We show that the location of adsorbate molecules on the CNTs surface depends on the alkalinity and acidity of the solution.

Carbon Nanostructures for Biotechnology: Technologies of Carbon Nanotube Synthesis with Definite Space Properties

The study summarizes major achievements in the field of single- and multi-layer carbon nanotube synthesis. We discuss the factors that influence the properties of carbon nanotubes. The method of chemical vapour deposition enables to control geometrics of carbon nanostructures. It is crucial for the target use in medicine biotechnology as a media for neuronal and endothelial cells at production of new effective systems for transportation of drugs and therapeutics, as well as in biosensors miniaturization.
