Abstract

In the last few years, interest on nanotubes have induced the development of programs for the preparation of noncovalently bonded self-organizing nanotubes from a variety of different methods, in most cases inspired by nature. These strategies include helically folded linear species, hollow bundles of rod-like units, rolled-up sheets, helically juxtapositioned truncated wedges, and stacked rings.
