In this comprehensive review, we have summarized the main results of our and other groups in using carbon nanotubes for biomedical applications including in vitro and in vivo biological detection, drug delivery and imaging. We have also discussed several controversial questions regarding toxicology, biodistribution and long term fate of carbon nanotubes.

Schematic of the peptidyl-DNA conjugate formed from linking dyelabeled thiolated-DNA to the reactive iodoacetyl peptide synthesized in this study. Self-assembly of the peptidyl-DNA conjugate to the QD surface is mediated by the terminal polyhistidine (His6) peptide sequence through metal-affinity coordination and results in efficient FRET from the QD donor to the dye attached on the proximal DNA.

Sensitive chemical sensors for gaseous phosgene are produced from composites of polyaniline nanofibers with organic amines. Neat polyaniline nanofibers show no response but the amine composites show a strong doping response due to the acid produced from the reaction of phosgene with the amine.
