Caption: Buckytube bomb, conceptual computer artwork. This image of a stick of dynamite inside a buckytube could represent the use of nanotechnology in warfare. A buckytube, or carbon nanotube, is a cylindrical fullerene molecule. The carbon atoms are arranged in a structure consisting of interlinking hexagonal rings. Fullerenes are a structural form (allotrope) of carbon. Buckytubes have unique physical and chemical properties, which can be exploited to make new catalysts, lubricants and superconductors.
