About Fullerene Nanotubes, Multi-Walled

Fullerene (C60) Nanotubes, Single-Walled and Multi-Walled - also known as Buckytubes or Buckyball Nanotubes, are nano scale cylindrical tubes of graphitic carbon with numerous applications as the stiffest and strongest known fibers and because of their unique electrical properties. They are available in single walled, double walled and multi-walled forms, bundled and unbundled, with tube lengths from 5 to 30 nanometers (nm) and specific surface area (SSA) in the 50 to 500 m2/g range. Fullerene Nanotubes are available in ultra high purity and high purity and coated suspended and dispersed forms. They are also available as a nanofluid through the AE Nanofluid production group. Nanofluids are generally defined as suspended nanoparticles in solution either using surfactant or surface charge technology. Nanofluid dispersion and coating selection technical guidance is also available. Other nanostructures include nanorods, nanowhiskers, nanohorns, nanopyramids and other nanocomposites. Surface functionalized nanoparticles allow for the particles to be preferentially adsorbed at the surface interface using chemically bound polymers.

Carbon Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Carbon's shells is 2, 4 and its electron configuration is [He] 2s2 2p2. In its elemental form, carbon's CAS number is 7440-44-0. Carbon is at the same time one of the softest (graphite) and hardest (diamond) materials found in nature. It is the 15th most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and the fourth most abundant element (by mass) in the universe after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. Carbon was discovered by the Egyptians and Sumerians circa 3750 BC. It was first recognized as an element by Antoine Lavoisierby in 1789.
