Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have found their uses in the biological sciences at molecular and cellular levels. Studies interfacing CNTs with biological molecules indicate that such interfaces can be established while the functions of biological molecules are preserved. In our study we used functionalization procedures to improve the solubility and biocompatibility of SWNT. PEI ( poly ethylene imine) have been extensively searched for its binding ability to plasmid due to positive surface charge of its porotonated amine groups in biologic pH and different vectors are synthesized by modifying PEI molecules to improve its viability . By attaching PEI to the surface of SWNT, synthesized vectors will be able to bind plasmid efficiently and internalize the cell without causing allergic reactions and can be used as delivery vehicles for gene delivery purpose.
