A carbon nanotube (CNT) is a tubular structure made of carbon atoms, having diameter of nanometer order but length in micrometers.
Platinum catalysts in fuel cells are too expensive for large-scale production. Stanford scientists have developed a technique that could make carbon nanotubes an attractive, low-cost alternative.
The roundest, most symmetrical large molecule found so far, buckminsterfullerene, continues to astonish with one amazing property after another.
