This paper reported the successful application of a 13.56-MHz external RF field (600-800 W for 1-2 min) to induce efficient heating in aqueous suspensions of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). When the SWNT solution was injected into tumors in live rabbits and the animals exposed to RF fields, the tumor cells were successfully destroyed with relatively little damage to surrounding tissues. The exact RF heating mechanism of such electrically small nanotubes is not yet understood.
