Abstract

An arc discharge plasma method in DNA dispersed solvents is developed in order to form DNA encapsulated nanocarbons. The arc discharge is performed using two graphite electrodes in a DNA dispersed distilled-water, and as a result, the soot is obtained in the solution containing multi-walled carbon nanotubes. In the case that the arc discharge is performed in a DNA dispersed toluene, the soot is obtained at the electrode tip and the contained nanomaterials have spheroidal shapes with multi graphite layers. Therefore this arc discharge method in the DNA dispersed solvents has a possibility of forming the encapsulation of DNA into their structure.
