Report Highlights

  • The estimated volume volume of research based on nanotubes (both single wall and specialty multiwall nanotubes) that have been produced worldwide to date, range from 10 to 20 kg, with a value of approximately $5 to $10 million. This report uses a figure of 22.1 kg in 2002, with a value of $7.2 million.
  • Multiwall nanotubes for modifying polymers are now sold in million-pound plus quantities.
  • Nanotubes may see near-term use in military, consumer and industrial products.
  • Long-term applications of nanotubes can easily exceed several billion dollars, but when, is debatable.

Report Highlights

  • Nanotubes, cylinders of carbon atoms with diameters ranging from 1 nm to 300 nm, are some of the strongest, stiffest materials known. Furthermore, these materials are either conductors or semi-conductors, depending on their structure and environment. Nanotubes have some physical properties that have no counterpart in macroscopic materials.
  • With advances in synthetic techniques and the ability to characterize materials readily on an atomic scale, interest has been piqued in nanometer-size materials. Since nanometer-size grains, cylinders, and plates have dramatically increased surface areas compared to their conventional-size materials, the chemistry of these nano-size materials is altered compared to conventional materials.
  • Macroscopic carbon compounds, such as diamond and graphite, have been known for centuries. These two forms of carbon compounds have been used in various applications ranging from lubricants to wear-resistant coatings. Although these materials have been available for many years, new applications of these materials are still being discovered today. It is clear that both graphite and diamond are economically important materials.
