Abstract:

This study refers to the identification of cytocompatibility of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes, which are superhydrophobic or superhydrophilic. The identification of their thermodynamic aspects, for use as biomaterials, especially in the development of scaffolds and other devices for filing and tissue regeneration was also investigated.

Keywords: Carbon nanotubes, Vertically aligned, Superhydrophilic, Cells, Thermodynamic, Adhesion force.
