Carbon nanotubes — what they are, how they are made, what they are used for

Posted by in categories: chemistry, nanotechnology, particle physics

Carbon nanotubes are cylindrical molecules that consist of rolled-up sheets of single-layer carbon atoms (graphene); they possess unique properties like high aspect ratio, mechanical strength, electrical and thermal conductivity, chemical stability, and a tip-surface area near the theoretical limit. They are one of the strongest materials known to man.
