Nanotube research at its beginnings

Abstract:
Under the direction of Xiao Cheng Zeng, Willa Cather professor of chemistry at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Bulusu used the supercomputer in combination with computations from Washington State University to determine the point where the element boron changes from a sheet of molecules to a 3-D ring.

If scientists can further research and development on this ring, Bulusu said, they could make a boron nanotube that would be superior to the current carbon one.
