Nanotube Mix Makes Liquid Crystal

Abstract:
Researchers from the University of Cambridge in England have found that carbon nanotubes can be mixed with a solvent to form a liquid crystal. The researchers' method opens the possibility of processing materials made from carbon nanotubes in ways similar to those used for existing materials like rigid chain polymers, or plastics.
