Improved carbon nanocapsules for radiotherapy against cancer

A team of researchers from various European institutes, Universities and a private company, have developed carbon nanocapsules that, once irradiated with neutrons, become able to deliver high radiation to cancer cells and, thus, to destroy the malignant tissue. The ICN2 and the ICMAB participated in this study, which has been recently published on ACS Nano.
