1 of 5
Why are fullerenes are new potential drug delivery systems?
The drugs can be delivered to its target without damaging normal cells.
2 of 5
What are nanotubes? (Structure)
They resemble a layer of graphite rolled into a tube.
3 of 5
How are nanotubes catalysts?
They have a huge surface area compared to their volume- high collision.
