Nanoheterocarbon materials are widely used in the field of national security (in particular, chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, explosive (CBRNE) defense), defense, environmental, food and health protection. The growing examples of international terrorist threats against citizens and major infrastructures push to strengthen security measures and the complication of sensing technologies. It requires the development of newer and newer nanomaterials based on carbon molecules and nanostructures modified (doped) by atoms of other elements. However, the toxicity of the most promising nanomaterials for nanosensors, catalysts and other nanodevices based on heterocarbon has not yet been studied enough. Therefore, along with the need to develop new methods for modifying carbon nanostructures with the aim of expanding the scope of their application, the most important task is to study their biocompatibility and potential toxicological effects on the human body.
