- ‘Which in this case, researchers reasoned, resulted in the orderly molecular structure of the nanotubes.’
- ‘The reaction to attach them to carbon nanotubes involves a ring-closure between atoms in the ‘anchor’ and two carbon atoms of the nanotube.’
- ‘The interactions of the lipid molecules with the nanotube may be classified as hydrophobic and hydrogen-bondlike.’
