Summary The difference in the chemical and physical properties of boron nitride nanotube (BNNT) films and carbon nanotube (CNT) films can benefit tissue scaffolding and engineering. However, the production of dense films of pure BNNTs is more challenging than that of CNT films. In addition, BNNT films are usually extremely nonwettable to water, so surface modification is required before they can be used in bioapplications. In this chapter, the synthesis routes of high-density BNNT films are introduced, followed by their wettability properties and surface modification by plasma treatments. The cell proliferation on both pristine and wettability-modified BNNT films is discussed.
