The strategy of combining biomolecules and synthetic components to develop biohybrids is becoming increasingly popular for preparing highly customized and biocompatible functional materials. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) benefit from bioconjugation, allowing their excellent properties to be applied to biomedical applications. This study reviews the state-of-the-art research in biomolecule-CNT conjugates and discusses strategies for their self-assembly into hierarchical structures. The review focuses on various highly ordered structures and the interesting properties resulting from the structural order. Hence, CNTs conjugated with the most relevant biomolecules, such as nucleic acids, peptides, proteins, saccharides, and lipids are discussed. The resulting well-defined composites allow the nanoscale properties of the CNTs to be exploited at the micro- and macroscale, with potential applications in tissue engineering, sensors, and wearable electronics. This review presents the underlying chemistry behind the CNT-based biohybrid materials and discusses the future directions of the field.

Abstract The on-line electrochemical analysis is one of powerful strategies in analytical chemistry and pathophysiology. To achieve high sensitivity and long-term stability of electrochemical biosensor, the bottleneck challenge is the spontaneous proteins adsorption onto the electrode surface within the biological fluids or in vivo environments. In this work, a hemoglobin/gelatin-multiwalled carbon nanotubes microbelts modified electrode (Hb/gelatin-MWCNTs/GC electrode) was successfully fabricat...

In this communication, electrostatically assembled phthalocyanine (Pc)-DNA origami (DO) complexes are formed and their optical properties are demonstrated. The formation of the complex prevents the Pc aggregation, thus yielding an enhanced optical response and photooxidative resilience towards aggregation in biologically-related media. Simultaneously, the Pc protects the DO against enzymatic digestion. Both features solve previous drawbacks associated with phthalocyanine photosensitizers and DNA...

Abstract Efficient, flexible and self-healing electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding materials are highly desirable and valuable for electromagnetic shielding industry. Furthermore, in order to achieve a commercial-grade EMI shielding effectiveness, a large amount of filler is required. Here, a kind of self-healing EMI shielding fabric was fabricated by preparing aligned carbon nanotube-poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (CNT-PHEMA) non-woven fabric through magnetic-field-assisted electros...

Aligning carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is a key challenge for fabricating CNT-based electronic devices. Herein, we report a spherical nucleic acid (SNA) mediated approach for the highly precise alignment of CNTs at prescribed sites on DNA origami. We find that the cooperative DNA hybridization occurring at the interface of SNA and DNA-coated CNTs leads to an approximately five-fold improvement of the positioning efficiency. By combining this with the intrinsic positioning addressability of DNA origami...

The use of bone tissue engineering scaffolds has become a promising potential treatment for bone defects as they expedite bone healing. A carbon nanotube–hydroxyapatite (CNT–HA) composite can accelerate the growth of cells. However, the molecular organized arrangement of organic and inorganic components is one of the most important biochemical phenomena in the formation of bones. This study aimed to prepare ordered CNT–HA scaffolds by applying agarose gel electrophoresis to imitate a biomimetic ...

Abstract null null Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have appeared in recent years as innovative components for the development of the next-generation scaffolds to regenerate damaged cardiac tissue. The unique robustness, mechanical and electronic properties of CNTs, along with their ease to undergo chemical modification, make them promising candidates for the design of engineered cardiac constructs with ad hoc properties. The integration of CNTs with polymeric scaffolds is a promising strategy for cardia...

Cationic surfactants interact with DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid), forming surfactant-DNA complexes that offer particularly efficient control for encapsulation and release of DNA from DNA gel particles. In the present work, DNA-based particles were prepared using CTAB (Cetyltrimethylammonium bromide) as the cationic surfactant and modified using two different additives: (Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes) MWNT or PEG (Poly Ethylene Glycol). The use of both additives to form composites increased the sta...

Abstract null null Carbon-based conductive and electroactive materials (e.g., derivatives of graphene, fullerenes, polypyrrole, polythiophene, polyaniline) have been studied since the 1970s for use in a broad range of applications. These materials have electrical properties comparable to those of commonly used metals, while providing other benefits such as flexibility in processing and modification with biologics (e.g., cells, biomolecules), to yield electroactive materials with biomimetic mecha...
