Since their discovery in 1991, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have emerged as material structures with numerous potential applications with a number of products already in the market place. An exciting application, which is emerging, is the use of carbon nanotubes for drug delivery. In this chapter, we focus on the functionalization, mechanism of cellular update, and using carbon nanotubes for delivery of anticancer drugs. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2007, 2016.
