Research Title Understanding the properties of structural analogues of multi wall carbon nanotubes
Research Personnel Leader:
Dr. Antonette de las Penas

Research Duration Start:
28 September 2014
27 September 2015
Research Location Ateneo De Manila University
Research Description This work will study the different parameters (e.g. chirality, relative positioning of the walls) involved in a systematic symmetry structure analysis of structural analogues of multiwall carbon nanotubes for their commensurate and incommensurate walls. The objectives of the study are: To arrive at a line group analysis of structural analogues of double wall carbon nanotubes based on varying chiralities using tools in color symmetry theory and representation theory; 2. To apply the analysis to double wall nanotubes with non-hexagonal morphologies; 3. To study inter-wall interaction of double wall carbon nanotubes and their structural analogues based on symmetry and chirality considerations
