Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), with diameters
in the range of 1­2 nm and lengths of a few micrometers,
possess very high surface-area-to-volume ratios and offer
great potential as advanced multifunctional materials.[1]
While carbon nanotubes have been traditionally investigat-
ed for their structural and electrical properties, they are
gaining significant attention in biological applications. In
particular, the interaction of carbon nanotubes with DNA
presents an especially interesting prospect, with potential
applications ranging from the dispersion and sorting of
to biomolecular sensing.[3­7]
Consequently, a va-
