Nanohashtag Structures Based On Carbon Nanotubes And Molecular Linkers

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) may prove to be useful building blocks within the field of nanotechnology. Different nanotubes and molecules might be combined to make useful supramolecular structures for filters, drug storage, nanomechanical devices, etc.  However, CNTs have a strong tendency to align in tight, parallel bundles* like a collection of straws stuck in a jar. Although parallel structures are useful for wires or fibers, this aligned clumping makes it challenging to create more open structures as might be used for...
