Processes on nanometer-scale dimensions are possible in a mechanically stable, flexible, and monolithic porous 3D carbon nanotube structure (see picture). The nanoscale chemical reactor exhibits an extremely high surface-to-volume ratio of up to 2×107 m2 m3, which depends on the tube diameter and tube separation. This exceeds values for current microreactors by at least two orders of magnitude.
