Application of Carbon Nano Tubes in Bone Regeneration - A Review

J Saravana Kumar, D Baskaran, S Kumar

Abstract


This paper given an overview of various applications of carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon, made of graphite and constructed in cylindrical tubes with nanometer in diameter and several millimeters in length. Their impressive structural, mechanical, and electronic properties are due to their small size and mass, their strong mechanical potency, and their high electrical and thermal conductivity. CNTs have been successfully applied various fields, Such as Pharmacy and medicine (Cancer, eye disease, bone healing etc.), Space elevator, Agriculture, Sensor, Solar cells, Body Armor. So, no one can ignore the countless applications of carbon nanotubes in various fields.

Keywords


Graphene, nanocomposite materials, osteogenic,nano fiber, PLLA.
