Abstract

A combination of data from ICP-MS, Raman spectroscopy, UV-vis spectrometry, atomic force microscopy, zeta-potential measurements and gel electorphoresis studies has shown that o-carborane may be immobilized on stable aqueous dispersions of lyso-phosphatidylcholine-functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes, which in turn indicates the potential of such structures for deployment as carrier vehicles in boron neutron capture therapy.
