Carbon nanotubes are a well-known material that have multiple uses in different scenarios such as delivering drugs. This current study is working on continuing previous honors research directed by Dr. Ellison. We have worked on attaching PEG (polyethylene glycol) to SWNTs (Single Walled Nanotubes) and FITC (fluorescein isothiocyanate). We also isolated nanotubes for other researchers to use along with lyophilizing the FITC into a workable form. We attached Rhodamine B to SWNT-PEG for the purposes of assisting honors research students.
