Inorganic Menagerie

Abstract:
In the world of nanotubes, there's no denying that carbon is king. Carbon nanotubes claim the lion's share of high-profile journal articles, reports in the popular press, and presentations at major scientific meetings. But a number of inorganic chemists have also fallen under the nanotube's spell. Delving into the periodic table, these scientists are finding that nanotubes made from inorganic materials have intriguing properties quite different from those of their all-carbon cousins and a range of potential applications.
