Abstract

Specific properties of carbon nanotubes, such as their level of agglomeration in the medium and their surface characteristics, can be critical for the physiological response of plants upon application of carbon nanotubes. The correlations among the level of aggregation, the type of functional group on the surface of the carbon nanotubes, and the growth performance of tomato plants are documented.
