Advanced Materials series: Carbon Nanotubes

Carbon Nanotubes formed from graphene are stronger, more flexible, and have higher conductivity properties than conventional materials. They have many potential benefits in construction & design.

The scope of applications for Carbon Nanotubes has increased in recent years, the medical industry is considering the effectiveness of the material for various forms of immunotherapy, for example. Throughout all of this there has been little developments in the usage of Carbon Nanotubes with specific rail applications, although the material is being more widely researched in adjacent transport industries such as Aerospace.
