Smart skins, sensors and carbon nanotube textiles are the future of nanotechnology.
Water beyond its abundance could also act strangely in some ways particularly if confined inside the nanotubes.
Carbon nanotube would not be enough to build a space elevator.
Factory ready technique that would use carbon nanotubes to better cool microprocessor chips.
Synthetic, man-made cells and ultrathin electronics built from a new form of “zero-dimensional” carbon nanotube may be possible through research at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering.
Synthetic polymers coating a nanoparticle surface can recognize specific molecules just like an antibody.
Despite their almost incomprehensibly small size – a diameter about one ten-thousandth the thickness of a human hair – single-walled carbon nanotubes come in a plethora of different “species,” each with its own structure and unique combination of electronic and optical properties.
Carbon nanotubes that detect nitric oxide can be implanted under the skin for more than a year.
Researchers from North Carolina State University used airbrushing techniques to grow vertically aligned carbon nanofibers on several different metal substrates, opening the door for incorporating these nanofibers into gene delivery devices, sensors, batteries and other technologies.
Researchers find that tiny molecules passing through nanotubes can be propelled or slowed depending on their size.
Chemical engineers find that arrays of carbon nanotubes can detect flaws in drugs and help improve production.
