The purpose of this review article was to study the application of carbon-nanotube in order to improved the drug delivery system. In nano materials carbon-nanotube have emerges the new alternative and efficient tool for transporting and translocating the therapeutic molecules. The technique has been developed to produce a multiple-walled carbon-nanotube and single wall carbo nanotube. The properties and characterization are still being research by various investigation which is able to pass through membranes, vaccine and nuclei acid deep into the target cells.
