Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Carbon nanotubes and carbon nanofibers have long been investigated for applications in composite structural materials, semiconductor devices, and sensors. With the recent well-documented ability to chemically modify nanofibrous carbon materials to improve their solubility and biocompatibility properties: a whole new class of bioactive carbon nanostructures has been created for biological applications. This review focuses on the latest applications of carbon nanofibers and carbon nanotubes in regenerative medicine.
