Go beyond basic nanotubes with this exciting new megatube kit, part of the Zome professional series. Complete directions on building models of massive carbon tubes, "pills," as well as the big Buckyball (C240) are included. Makes a great visual presentation for professionals or an exciting project for the younger scientist.
The use and engineering of nanotubes is at the forefront of nanotechnology. They are already used to strengthen new composite materials, who knows where they will turn up next?
Nanotubes are like stretched out and lengthened Buckyballs. They have been used in graphite fiber composites for stealth and aviation materials long before we even knew they were nanotubes! Now, they are being developed to make superconducting nanowires, single atom lasers, and chemical nanosensors for toxic materials and explosives. The potential applications are incredible!
