Nanoparticles increase their activity due to their large surface-to-volume ratio. It has promoted research to check the antibacterial activity of the synthesized manganese oxide nanoparticles of actual size. Carbon Nanotube (CNT) shows excellent potential as a biomedical substrate based on its high chemical stability, elasticity, mechanical strength, electrical conductivity, and nano-level attachment of CNT with microbiologically susceptible manganese oxide materials that opens new possibilities to enhance the antibacterial delivery system. Functionalized CNTs with nanoactive materials realize nanoscaled containers in which the active content is encapsulated by a protecting carbon shell. CNT itself doesn't have any antibacterial activity and can frequently release the carrying drugs to the target places in specific chemical environments. The ability to functionalize the sidewalls of CNT also leads to biomedical applications such as neuron growth and regeneration. This research focuses on the amplified application of CNT as a nano-carrier based delivery vehicle and their appropriate design for desired drug delivery results in different areas of infectious diseases.
