Annotation The article representes the research of single-walled carbon nanotubes with amino group modified sensor activity to metal atoms and their ions. The process of the amino group binding to the open edge of the nanotube has been perfomed. Investigation of the interaction between the nanotube, used as sensor, and metal atoms and ions are represented. The mechanism of scanning process in relation to atoms of metals has been modeled and the chemical activity of amine group is defined. The calculations have been carried out by the MNDO method within the framework of the molecular cluster model.
