  Engineering of Nanostructures from Carbon Nanotubules
The carbon nanotubule used for the indentation simulation is of type (10,10) and consists of 20 unit cells, terminated with 10 hydrogen atoms at each end for a total of 820 atoms in the tip.
The top 100 atoms of the carbon nanotubule (furthest from the surface) and the 1480 atoms at the base of the substrate (furthest from the tip) are held rigid throughout the simulation.
In a second simulation, the indentation was continued until the nanotubule deformed plastically through a buckling mechanism, thus reducing the load on the tip (Figure 2).

 C&EN: SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY - FROM MEMBRANES TO NANOTUBULES
Nanotubules of inorganic materials such as silica or titania can be prepared through sol-gel chemistry, and carbon nanotubules can be made through chemical vapor deposition.
The nanotubules come out embedded in a membrane, aligned, and monodisperse--that is, of uniform diameter and of a uniform length equal to the thickness of the membrane.
With cysteine anchored to the nanotubule walls, Martin begins to bridge the gap between nonbiological and biological agents that modify transport across the nanotubule membrane.

The armour consists of the Carbon Nanotubule shell and the Carbon Fibre hull re-enforcement.
The powerful carbon nanotubule shell is the key to this armour system.
This not only makes the nanotubule mesh less vulnerable, but protects lower layers of the hull as they are heated more evenly.

Nanotubule membranes prepared via the template method are of particular interest.
We are exploring applications of these nanotubule membranes in chemical analysis and in membrane-based chemical separations.
We have also shown that these nanotubule membranes can form the basis of a new method of electrochemical analysis that has detection limits as low as 10-11 M. In both the applications to chemical analysis and chemical separations, it is important to introduce chemical selectivity into the nanotubule membrane.

 Interfacial Engineering Group   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
To improve the chiral selectivity of the membrane-based enantioseparation, we propose to develop nanotubule membrane with proper proteins immobilized on; the membrane will be made into cartridges and placed in a High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) for testing and operation.
Nanotubule membranes can have a controlled pore size on the order of nanometers and hence offer excellent steric exclusivity for various chemicals.
Combining the chiral selectivity of proteins and the steric exclusivity of nanotubules, the proposed protein immobilized nanotubule membranes are expected to provide high enantioselectivity.

 Carbon nanotubule formation through polyyne-containing carbon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The cross-section of the film (100 nm thick), which was embedded in an epoxy resin, was heated (800C) and irradiated with electrons (accelerating voltage: 100 kV) in a transmission electron microscope.
The obtained nanotubules were a few mm in length, 10 - 50 nm in outer diameter.
This result suggests that the polyyne-containing carbon can be a precursor to form the carbon nanotubules.

 The Triple Helix
Researchers at the University of Texas’s Nanotech Institute have built artificial muscles that are capable of overcoming that constraint by acting as both a fuel source and an actuator.
The group’s first design involves a catalyst-covered carbon nanotubule that simultaneously serves as a fuel cell electrode, a supercapacitor electrode, and as a muscle [1].
The artificial muscle, like a biological one, converts chemical energy into electrical energy, which it can then either store or transform into mechanical energy to use for movement [1,2].

"In our paper, we report on a new paradigm for lipid self-assembly leading to nanotubule formation in mixed charged systems," said Cyrus Safinya, a professor who led the study.
The researchers, having looked at the interaction between the negatively charged nanometer-scale hollow cylinders derived from cell cytoskeleton and positively charged lipid membranes, discovered that under the right conditions spontaneous lipid protein nanotubules will form.
The new type of self-assembly arises because of an extreme mismatch between the charge densities of microtubules and cationic lipid, the researchers said.
