Researchers grow homogeneous carbon nanotubes from ‘seed molecules’

Lack of uniformity in carbon nanotubes has previously been a problem preventing them from widespread use.

Swiss and German scientists have developed a method of growing homogeneous carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The researchers from The Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) and the Max Planck Institute successfully utilized “seed molecules”, which were specifically created for...
