As a novel superstructure, single-walled carbon nanorings exhibit interesting transport properties, such as Aharonov-Bohm effects, magnetotransport or establishment of persistent currents. Researchers in China have developed a new technique to produce large quantities of small-diameter single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) nanorings.

Building reliable interconnections between carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and external electrical and mechanical systems is an essential prerequisite to exploring the potential of CNTs in various domains. The formation of a stable and low-resistance ohmic contact between CNTs and electrodes contributes to speeding up the development of applications with CNTs in nanoelectronic devices with small size, fast speed and low power dissipation.

There is universal consensus among scientists and researchers that more work is needed on all of the new carbon nanomaterials that have been developed over the past years to adequately assess their toxicity and health risks. A recent review addresses the current status, trends and perspectives of this issue.
Apr 18th, 2006
Researchers in Finland and The Netherlands demonstrated that it is possible to grow and wire a single platinum nanoparticle using a single-walled carbon nanotube, thus providing a bottom-up approach to building nanoelectrodes.

Carbon nanotubes ((CNTs) are five times less dense than steel and approximately 30 times stronger. Their mechanical properties make them ideal candidates for the mechanical reinforcement of polymers.

Spanish researchers have shown that carbon nanotubes (CNTs) constitute the ideal templates for the formation of one-dimensional strings of metal nanoparticles, with potential uses as waveguides, that would allow the miniaturization of devices below the diffraction limit and as catalytic motors.
