Tungsten sulphide nanotubes show their strength

Abstract:
Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, and the Technical University of Dresden in Germany have found that certain tungsten sulphide nanotubes were as strong as theory predicts for structures without defects. The tubes had a tensile strength of around 16 GPa. The nanotubes exhibited a Young's modulus of 152 GP (68), a strength of 3.716.3 GPa (11%) and an elongation of 514% (0.1%).
