Nanotubes can be used in superconducting materials, new electronic materials, and non-linear optics, to name a few. Research at Kansas State University has synthesized beltenes and cyclacenes, belt-like compounds, which provide a wide range of structural and functional capabilities to the self-assembled nanotubes.
The research on the synthesis of these compounds is unprecedented and it will provide new applications in chemical, biological and material sciences.
