Title: "Development of Carbon Nanocapsules for Biomedical Applications"

Date: Friday, 21 July 2017
Time: 11:00 am
Venue: Sala d'actes Carles Miravitlles

Abstract: 
magdalenaThe high surface area and hollow core of carbon nanotubes makes them ideal candidates for the development of smart nanovectors in nanomedicine. Their inner cavity can be employed to host selected payloads for either diagnosis or therapeutic purposes while the external walls can be modified to increase their biocompatibility and even for targeting purposes. The main goal of this work was to develop samples of filled carbon nanotubes with a low degree of structural defects, characterized by high purity and a short and narrow length distribution for biomedical applications. In this way carbon nanocapsules were prepared (Figure). The nanocapsules were then covalently functionalized in order to improve their dispersion which is essential to render material biocompatible.
