Theoretical Tubulanes Inspire Ultrahard Polymers

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

TUBULANES-BLOG-1Current News Rice-printed sample is full of holes, but stops bullets better than solid materials A lightweight material full of holes is nearly as hard as diamond. The mere dents left by speeding bullets prove it. Researchers at Rice University’s Brown School of Engineering and their colleagues are testing polymers based on tubulanes, theoretical structures of crosslinked carbon nanotubes predicted to have extraordinary strength.
