Cells selectively absorb short nanotubes
DNA-wrapped single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) shorter than about 200 nanometers readily enter into human lung cells and so may pose an increased risk to health, according to scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The results of their laboratory studies appear in an upcoming issue of Advanced Materials. View News Article (2007-04-02)


Nanotube, heal thyself
Pound for pound, carbon nanotubes are stronger and lighter than steel, but unlike other materials, the miniscule cylinders of carbon - which are no wider than a strand of DNA - remain remarkably robust even when chunks of their bodies are blasted away with heat or radiation. View News Article (2007-02-16)


World's smallest radio uses single nanotube to pick up good vibrations
Physicists at the University of California, Berkeley, have built the smallest radio yet - a single carbon nanotube one ten-thousandth the diameter of a human hair that requires only a battery and earphones to tune in to your favorite station. View News Article (2007-11-01)


Nanotube foams flex and rebound with super compressibility
Carbon nanotubes have enticed researchers since their discovery in 1991, offering an impressive combination of high strength and low weight. View News Article (2005-11-28)


MIT researchers make carbon nanotubes without metal catalyst
Carbon nanotubes - tiny, rolled-up tubes of graphite - promise to add speed to electronic circuits and strength to materials like carbon composites, used in airplanes and racecars. View News Article (2009-08-11)


Researchers Create DNA-Based Sensors for Nano-Tongues and Nano-Noses
Nano-sized carbon tubes coated with strands of DNA can create tiny sensors with abilities to detect odors and tastes, according to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Monell Chemical Sciences Center. View News Article (2005-09-16)


UC Riverside scientists discovering new uses for tiny carbon nanotubes
The atom-sized world of carbon nanotubes holds great promise for a future demanding smaller and faster electronic components. Nanotubes are stronger than steel and smaller than any element of silicon-based electronics-the ubiquitous component of today's electrical devices-and have better conductivity, which means they can potentially process information faster while using less energy. View News Article (2013-05-15)


Detection of DNA on nanotubes offers new sensing, sequencing technologies
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who recently reported that DNA-wrapped carbon nanotubes could serve as sensors in living cells now say the tiny tubes can be used to target specific DNA sequences. View News Article (2006-02-22)


The longest carbon nanotubes you've ever seen
Using techniques that could revolutionize manufacturing for certain materials, researchers have grown carbon nanotubes that are the longest in the world. While still slightly less than 2 centimeters long, each nanotube is 900,000 times longer than its diameter. View News Article (2007-05-11)


Layered security: Carbon nanotubes promise improved flame-resistant coating
Using an approach akin to assembling a club sandwich at the nanoscale, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) researchers have succeeded in crafting a uniform, multi-walled carbon-nanotube-based coating that greatly reduces the flammability of foam commonly used in upholstered furniture and other soft furnishings. View News Article (2014-01-16)
