Non-Toxicity of Water Soluble Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube on Escherichia-coli Colonies
Carboxylic acid functionalized water soluble carbon nanotube (wsCNT) shows no toxic effect against the growth of Escherichia-coli (E.coli), a gram-negative bacteria. Treatment up to 8 μg mL−1 of wsCNT did not show any toxic effect on E.coli growth that was followed by using bacterial growth kinetics and Spread Plate Technique (SPT). The number of E-coli colonies counts with and without wsCNT showed nearly no change and the bacterial growth kinetics in both the cases showing no toxic effect of wsCNT on the growth of E.coli.
