Carbon nanotubes & nanofibers

What are Carbon nanotubes? Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a cylindrical nanostructure. Nanotubes have been constructed with length-to-diameter ratio of up to 132,000,000:1, significantly larger than for any other material. These cylindrical carbon molecules have unusual properties, which are valuable for nanotechnology, electronics, optics and other fields of materials science and technology. In particular, owing to their extraordinary thermal conductivity and mechanical and electrical properties, carbon nanotubes find applications as additives to various structural materials. For instance, nanotubes form a tiny portion of the material(s) in some (primarily carbon fiber) baseball bats, golf clubs, car parts or damascus steel.

Carbon nanofibers (CNFs) are another form of carbon nanomaterial (with nm to submicrometer diameter and micrometer length) with superior mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties that can be obtained by electrospinning of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) followed by additional stabilization steps.
