The important peculiarity of 2ME drug is in having OH functional groups, causing strong hydrogen bond between the drug and NTCOOH and this is the reason that makes this drug a proper candidate for delivery by functionalized carbon nanotube. Generally, for noncovalent interactions, comparison between COOH and COCl functionalized single wall carbon nanotube shows that using the first one is more suitable due to a stronger interaction between 2ME and NTCOOH.
