Carbon nanotubes: promising agents against free radicals

Author affiliations

Abstract

The potential role of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as free-radical scavengers is still an emerging area of research. So far some promising results have been reported strongly suggesting that CNTs can be very efficient for that task. The implications of such a valuable property for applications aimed at biomedical and environmental uses are encouraging. There are still abundant open questions related to the possible use of CNTs for scavenging free radicals. Thus much more work needs to be devoted to this fascinating topic. In this mini review the progress made so far is reviewed and some future perspectives are provided.
