In the present study, the interaction between drug Tyrphostin AG528 and CNT(6,6-6) nanotube by Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations in an solvent water has been investigated for the first time. According to the calculations, intermolecular hydrogen bonds take place between active position of the molecule Tyrphostin AG528 and hydrogen atoms of the nanotube which plays an important role in the stability of complex CNT(6,6-6)/Tyrphostin AG528. The non-bonded interaction effects of the molecule Tyrphostin AG528 with CNT(6,6-6) nanotube on the electronic properties, chemical shift tensors and natural charge have been also detected. The natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis suggested that the molecule Tyrphostin AG528 as an electron donor and the CNT(6,6-6) nanotube play the role of an electron acceptor at the complex CNT(6,6-6)/Tyrphostin AG528. The electronic spectra of the Tyrphostin AG528 drug and complex CNT(6,6-6)/Tyrphostin AG528 in solvent water were calculated by Time Dependent Density Functional Theory (TD-DFT) for the investigation of adsorption effect of the Tyrphostin AG528 drug over nanotube on maximum wavelength. Then, the possibility of the use of CNT(6,6-6) nanotube for Tyrphostin AG528 delivery to the diseased cells has been established.
