Why do carbon nanotubes have a high melting point?

What are carbon nanotubes (CNTs)?

  • The exceptional physical, chemical, and electronic properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and their composites offer exciting possibilities for nanometer-scale electronic applications. This chapter presents an overview of the structure, properties, and applications of CNTs.

What is the tensile strength of carbon nanotubes?

  • The tensile strength of carbon nanotubes is approximately 100 times greater than that of steel of the same diameter. There are two things that account for this strength. The first is the strength provided by the interlocking carbon-to-carbon covalent bonds.

What is the (n) notation for carbon nanotube?

  • The (n,m) notation A "sliced and unrolled" representation of a carbon nanotube as a strip of a graphene molecule, overlaid on diagram of the full molecule (faint background). The arrow shows the gap A2 where the atom A1 on one edge of the strip would fit in the opposite edge, as the strip is rolled up.
