  • Are carbon nanotubes the `new asbestos`?

    The demand for carbon nanotubes is increasing because they have unusual properties, such as unique electrical properties. However, their needle-like shape is similar to asbestos, raising questions about their safety. A recent study conducted on mice indicates that a specific type of carbon nanotube does have asbestos-like effects, but further research is needed to assess whether this is also the ...

  • EPA proposes SNURs for carbon nanotubes

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed significant new use rules (SNUR) under Section 5(a)(2) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for two chemical substances that were the subject of premanufacture notices (PMN). EPA identified the substances generically as multi-walled carbon nanotubes and single-walled carbon nanotubes. According to the notice, these substances ...

  • Carbon nanotubes could be released by plastic as it degrades

    Carbon nanotubes (CNT) could be released into the environment as the plastic they are embedded in degrades, a new study suggests. The research found that general wear combined with exposure to UV light and moderate humidity would expose CNTs, posing a potential threat to human health. CNTs are cylinders of carbon molecules a few tens of nanometres thick, which have a number of valuable thermal, ...

    Source: 'The rational design of nitric oxide selectivity in single-walled carbon nanotube near infrared fluorescence sensors for biological detection'Jong-Ho Kim et alNature Chemistry Results: A new carbon nanotube sensor developed at MIT is the first sensor that can reversibly detect nitric oxide, a gas that cells commonly use to communicate with each other. Because the nitric oxide-carbon ...

  • Researchers make carbon nanotubes without metal catalyst

    Carbon nanotubes - tiny, rolled-up tubes of graphite - promise to add speed to electronic circuits and strength to materials like carbon composites, used in airplanes and racecars. A major problem, however, is that the metals used to grow nanotubes react unfavorably with materials found in circuits and composites. But now, researchers at MIT have for the first time shown that nanotubes can grow ...
