Edge effects, electronic arrangement, and aromaticity patterns on finite-length carbon nanotubes.

Abstract

Previous investigations have revealed that even long carbon nanotubes (CNTs) retain bond patterns that are characterized by the localization of Clar rings. Even for CNTs with 10 nm length, an alternated, oscillating structure of Clar and Kekulé patterning was also found, indicating that these arrangements may possibly persist for even longer nanotubes… (More)
