By Slava V. Rotkin,Shekhar Subramoney

again in 1991 Sumio Iijima ?rst observed photographs of multi-walled carbon nanotubes within the TEM. years later, he and Donald Bethune synthesized the ?rst single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs). on the grounds that then, we've seen super - vances in either the tools for nanotube synthesis and within the figuring out in their homes. presently, centimeter-long SWNTs could be conveniently grown at chosen positions on an outstanding substrate, and big amounts of nanotubes could be produced for business functions. Signi?cant development has been made in generating approximately homogeneous samples of nanotubes of just a couple of diameters/chiralities. it really is anticipated that the advance of innovations for the synthesis of a unmarried kind of nanotube isn't really distant. even as, actual and chemical systems for the separation of nanotube combinations are being proven. as well as natural nanotubes, derivatized n- otubes with connected chemical or biochemical teams are being ready. Nanotubes appearing as bins for atoms, molecules (such because the "peapods") and chemical reactions are attracting signi?cant awareness. In parallel with the substitute e?ort there was a race to decipher the houses of those materials.
It is now transparent that nanotubes own designated mechanical, electric, thermal and optical houses. Scientists and en- neers around the globe are exploring quite a lot of technological appli- tionsthatmakeuseoftheseproperties.
