Carbon nanotubes (CNT) can have great potential in the field of medical science [1]. This potential includes the process of cancer treatment using drug delivery, thermal treatment of cancer and localization of cancer cells. [2,3] As well as the benefits about these materials, various negative points have also been presented with the CNTs. These have delayed their clinical usage for many years after their discovery. One main concern about nanoparticles [4] and in particular CNT is the issue that its exposure to the body could result in damage to the cells and their content [5]. For this reason, various research groups have focused on developing various methods to reduce the toxicity of nanoparticles and in particular carbon nanotubes [6]
