Nanotube composites - deja vu all over again?

Abstract:
Richard Jones: Carbon nanotubes are, in principle, about the strongest and stiffest materials we know about. The obvious way to exploit the strength and stiffness of fibrous materials like nanotubes is to use them to make a composite material, like the carbon fibre composites that are currently some of the strongest and lightest materials available for advanced applications like the aerospace industry. But the development of nanotube composites has been disappointingly slow.
