Poly(methacrylic acid)-grafted carbon nanotube-based thin films are found to significantly improve the neuronal differentiation efficiency, and relatively mature neuronal cells have been derived directly from hESCs, owing to their excellent protein sequestration ability and nanofibrillar characteristics. This novel material platform creates new opportunities in the tissue regeneration field.
