We report the preparation, properties and biocompatibility of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) disk. Sintered Multi-walled carbon nanotube disk was fabricated by spark plasma sintering the MWCNT and phenol resin mixture by using the Spark Plasma System (SPS) under 1273 K and 80 MPa in vacuum. As the concentration of phenol resin in the sintered MWCNT disk increases, the bending strength and Young’s modulus increased. However, the inflammatory response was observed in the tissue exposed to the surface of the sintered MWCNT disk. This was believed due to the residual phenol resin in the disk. The result indicates that the disk has to be annealed at higher temperatures under inert gas atmosphere to perfectly convert phenol resin to graphitic materials.
