The electrical and optical properties of MWCNTs/DNA composite were studied. Electrical conductivity studies reveal that, the increase in CNTs concentration in DNA increases the conductivity. Fourier transformed Infrared (FTIR) spectrum shows that the CNTs are bonded to DNA covalently at the ends and defects sites and the wrapping of DNA on the CNTs is due to van der Waals force.
