Emerging Applications of Carbon Nanotubes in Drug and Gene Delivery brings together principles behind the formation, characterization and development of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with recent advances in drug and gene delivery applications. The book begins with an introduction to the unique properties of CNTs, as well as the various synthesis, purification and functionalization methods available. Later chapters cover drug and gene delivery using CNTs for therapeutic applications, comparing advantages and disadvantages of each. The book then goes on to discuss toxicity and safety challenges in using CNTs in biomedicine, with a forward-look at regulatory requirements and clinical translations.

This book offers a detailed reference for materials scientists, biomedical engineers, pharmaceutical scientists and geneticists interested in CNTs and nanomedicine.
