A New, Simple and Versatile Strategy for the Synthesis of Short Segments of Zigzag-Type Carbon Nanotubes

Abstract : Short segments of zigzag single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) were obtained from a calixarene scaffold by using a completely new, simple and expedited strategy that allowed fine-tuning of their diameters. This new approach also allows for functionalised short segments of zigzag SWCNTs to be obtained; a prerequisite towards their lengthening. These new SWCNT short segments/calixarene composites show interesting behaviour in solution. DFT analysis of these new compounds also suggests interesting photophysical behaviour. Along with the synthesis of various SWCNTs segments, this approach also constitutes a powerful tool for the construction of new, radially oriented π systems.
