Although carbon nanotubes usually clump in water, they readily disperse when the water contains natural organic matter, researchers report.
AIST has encapsulated beta-carotene in HiPco single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), a type of carbon nanotube currently marketed by Carbon Nanotechnologies Inc.
292, Issue 5517, April 27, 2001) to produce arrays of carbon nanotube transistors, bypassing the need to meticulously separate metallic and semiconducting nanotubes.
Meta-Nanotubes are a new generation of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) which result from the chemical transformation of regular CNTs and their subsequent combination with foreign materials (atoms, molecules, chemical groups, nanocrystals) by various ways such as functionalisation, doping, filling, and substitution.
Scientists have warned that carbon nanotubes could pose a cancer risk similar to that of asbestos.
However, the batches of carbon nanotubes that manufacturers now produce are difficult to use because they contain a hodgepodge of tubes of varying electronic properties and diameters.
This proves that the smaller carbon nanotube transistors should allow for Moore's Law to continue on its path when silicon cannot be made any smaller.
