Peapods - Molecules Inside Carbon Nanotubes.

Peapods are the fun name given to carbon nanotubes filled with molecular material, in particular fullerenes.

Fullerenes adopt an ordered crystal structure within the nanotube and is one of the only ways known to form a 1D chain of fullerenes.

We have extensive experience of inserting metallofullerenes inside single-walled carbon nanotubes and studying their structure and electron spin properties.
