A Review on: Carbon Nanotubes Are Vital for Plant Growth

  title={A Review on: Carbon Nanotubes Are Vital for Plant Growth},
  author={Tiwary Mukesh and Ashok Kumar Jha},
Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a nanostructure that can have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 1,000,000. These cylindrical carbon molecules have novel properties that make them potentially useful in many applications in nanotechnology. Formally derived from the grapheme sheet they exhibit unusual mechanical properties such as high toughness and high elastic moduli. Referring to their electronic structure, they exhibit semiconducting as well as metallic behavior and… CONTINUE READING
