From Nanowerjs, researchers at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan have newly designed and synthesized amphiphilic molecules, and have developed a technique for the synthesis of various organic nanotubes of 40-200 nm in inner diameter, 70-500 nm in outer diameter, and several to hundreds µm in length by self-assembling them in organic solvents.
This method needs less than one thousandth of the solvent used by conventional methods, enabling mass-production of organic nanotubes.
