Nanotube technology. Computer artwork of a cylindrical fullerene (carbon nanotube) bent to form a circular torus shape. The hexagonal carbon structure of the nanotube is shown here. Fullerenes are a structural form (allotrope) of carbon. Theoretically, a wide range of molecular shapes can be engineered at the molecular level using fullerenes. Such structures are being investigated for a wide range of technological and medical uses.
