When added on murine MC3T3-E1 preosteoblasts, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) produced by radio frequency induction thermal plasma with three catalyst mixtures drastically reduced cell viability in a dose-dependent manner. In contrast, the viability of preosteoblasts seeded on SWCNTs was slightly decreased at 24 h without apoptosis and the cells could proliferate within 48 h. Thus except mechanical disturbance, thermal plasma grown SWCNTs induced no severe cytotoxicity on preosteoblasts and therefore could be more deeply studied for bone applications.
