Caption: Nanotube structure. Computer artwork showing a cylindrical nanotube being formed from a sheet of graphene, a single layer of graphite. This molecule is a type of fullerene, a structural type (allotrope) of carbon. Its carbon atoms are arranged in a structure consisting of interlinking hexagonal and pentagonal rings. Theoretically, a wide range of shapes can be engineered at the molecular level using fullerenes. Such structures could have a wide range of technological and medical uses.
