Low-temp polymer nanotubes foretell plastic circuits

Chemists at Central Michigan University have grown carbon nanotubes at a record-low 175 degrees C using a polymer type known as dendrimers as the substrate.

"This is the first time anyone has grown carbon nanotubes directly from a dendrimer catalyst at temperatures low enough that the dendrimer is not destroyed," said CMU professor Bradley Fahlman, lead researcher on the project.
