Carbon Nanocage: Super-Adsorber of Intercalators for DNA Protection
In this research, we report the binding behaviors of two kinds of intercalators, methyl violet and 3,6diaminoacridine hydrochloride, to various mesoporous materials, carbon nanocage, mesoporous carbon CMK-3, activated carbon, and mesoporous silica SBA-15. Due to its unique cage type structure, carbon nanocage shows greater adsorption capacity than the other adsorbents. In addition, competitive adsorption of methyl violet between DNA and mesoporous materials confirmed that carbon nanocage can very efficiently inhibit intercalation of methyl violet by DNA. Carbon nanocage might then be useful for entrapment of harmful aromatic molecules.
