Carbon nanotubes were first introduced by Ijima in 1991. From that day, it was widely used in many fields such as engineering, physics and medical fields, including improving tribological behavior and material mechanical properties for orthopedic used. Many precursors varied from solid to liquid used to synthesis it. In current study, carbon nanotube was successfully synthesized by using natural source precursor, fermented tapioca. The synthesized carbon nanotubes were characterized by Raman spectroscopy, FESEM, FTIR and TGA in order to study the physical and chemical properties before subjected to cells toxicity screening on neuroblastoma cells.
