Synthesis and Modification of Carboxylated Multi Wall Nanotubes with Atenolol
In this paper functionalized multiwall carbon nanotubes (FMWCNT) were modified using atenolol as a class of drugs that were used in cardiovascular diseases containing reactable nitrogen, which could attach chemically to functionalized MWCNT. This product was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Raman spectroscopy. These spectrums proved the existence of nitrogen atoms of amide due to new functional group. The morphology were also determined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and showed that this product was synthesized in the nanometer dimension. Thermal gravimetery (TGA) analysis was also used to evaluate thermal properties.
