52_08i/2013Inside Cover: Asbestos-like Pathogenicity of Long Carbon Nanotubes Alleviated by Chemical Functionalization (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 8/2013)

Alleviation of the asbestos-like pathogenicity of long, pristine carbon nanotubes is possible by modifying their surface and reducing their effective length by de-bundling, following certain types of chemical functionalization. In their Communication on page 2274 ff., M. Prato, A. Bianco, K. Kostarelos, et al. show that a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction on carbon nanotubes produces well-dispersed individualized nanotubes with a risk-free toxicity profile.
