The intrinsic chemical reactivity of individual and suspended single-walled carbon nanotubes is investigated using electron diffraction. The results reveal that the reactivity of nanotubes is not only related to their diameters and electronic properties, but also to their chiral angles. Simple air treatment at medium temperatures may selectively enrich large-diameter and high-chiral-angle semiconducting carbon nanotubes.
