CNTs have the potential to revolutionise electronics, health and even sports equipment and the environment. Frank Hart* takes a look at the industry and examines the relationship of the nanotechnology to graphene and graphite.

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are hollow tubes made entirely of carbon. Tube diameters can be as low as one nanometer (10-9m), while length can be hundreds of microns, giving aspect ratios above 130,000,000: 1, greater than any other substance. CNTs are unique because the bonding between the atoms makes them very...
