Rice engineers make first pure nanotube fibers

Abstract:
Researchers at Rice University have discovered how to create continuous fibers of out of pristine single-walled carbon nanotubes. The process, which is similar to the one used to make Kevlar® on an industrial scale, offers the first real hope of making threads, cables and sheets of pure carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The research is available online today from the journal Macromolecules. So far, no large-scale objects have been made of pure nanotubes due to a lack of processing methods that are viable on an industrial scale. (more on earlier article)
