Carbon nanotube – naturally self-organized nanostructure in the form of a tube composed of carbon atoms with completed bonds. There are two general forms, which are single-wall and multiwall nanotubes. A single-wall carbon nanotube can be considered as a single sheet of graphite, which is called graphene, that has been rolled up into a tube. The resulting nanotube can have metallic or semiconducting properties depending on the direction in which the sheet was rolled up. See Nanoscale, Nanotechnology, and Nanomaterials.
