In a recently published paper in Science Advances, Feng Ding of the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials and colleagues have achieved the creation of a specific type of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with a selectivity of 90 percent, and expanded the current theory that explains the synthesis of these promising nanocylinders.

CNTs are incredibly strong and light nanomaterials made of with superior current carrying capacity and very , making them ideal for electronic applications. Although CNTs are considered as some of the most interesting materials for the future, scientists are still struggling for their controllable synthesis.
