The energetics of large-sized fullerenes and carbon nanotubes is investigated through first-principles pseudopotential calculations for the carbon cluster of CN (60<N<540). The strain energy due to the presence of pentagons, in addition to the curvature effect, makes an important contribution to the energetics of the fullerenes and nanotubes and accurately describes the N dependence of the energy of the spherical fullerenes. Our model predicts that a nanotube of ;13 Å in diameter @for example… CONTINUE READING
