Chementator: Nanotubes

By Chemical Engineering |

Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Calif.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/5826-549), Boston College (edlinks.chemengonline.com/5826-550) and MIT (both Mass.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/5826-551) have discovered that by heating a single-walled nanotube of carbon to 3,600°F, its strength is increased by 280%. The discovery is expected to have implications in the ceramics and nanocomposites industry, where such materials might be used in high-temperature applications.   Click here for a full pdf version of the Chementator Section
