Abstract

The structural and electronic properties of bamboo-like carbon nanostructure have been investigated qualitatively by performing semi-empirical self-consistent-field molecular orbital calculations at the level of the PM3 method within the RHF formulation. It has been found that these structures are stable and endothermic. Bamboo-like carbon nanostructures resemble zigzag carbon nanotubes capped with a plane graphine sheet. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V.
