Multiwalled carbon nanotubes are coated with poly(lactide)-poly(ethylene glycol) (PLA-PEG). This coating imparts aqueous solubility, thereby improving the toxicological profile of carbon nanotubes. Moreover, the amphiphilic coating enables the ability to load hydrophobic anticancer drugs into the inner PLA layer, making this nanostructure suitable for drug delivery.
