Definition: nanotech is the study of the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Nanotechnology uses techniques, processes and materials at the supramolecular level, approximately in a range between 1100 nanometers (nm), in order to create new properties and to stimulate particular desired functionalities.

There are two models which can be used to describe the structures of multiwalled nanotubes. Nanotubes are categorized as single-walled nanotubes (SWNTs) and multi-walled nanotubes (MWNTs).000th of the width of a human hair). Multi-walled nanotubes (MWNT) consist of multiple rolled layers (concentric tubes) of graphite. The interlayer distance in multi-walled nanotubes is close to the distance between graphene layers in graphite. The ends of a nanotube might be capped with a hemisphere of the buckyball structure. . This bonding structure. a single sheet of graphite is rolled in around itself. since the diameter of a nanotube is on the order of a few nanometers (approximately 1/50.3 Å (330 pm). while they can be up to several millimeters in length (as of 2008). e. orbital hybridization. provides the molecules with their unique strength. The nature of the bonding of a nanotube is described by applied quantum chemistry. The chemical bonding of nanotubes is composed entirely of sp2 bonds. resembling a scroll of parchment or a rolled newspaper.Carbon nanotubes     Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a cylindrical nanostructure Nanotubes are members of the fullerene structural family. giving the possibility of producing strong. Nanotubes naturally align themselves into "ropes" held together by Van der Waals forces. specifically. Under high pressure. sheets of graphite are arranged in concentric cylinders. approximately 3. unlimited-length wires through high-pressure nanotube linking. In the Russian Doll model. trading some sp2 bonds for sp3bonds. Their name is derived from their size. which also includes the spherical buckyballs. a (0. nanotubes can merge together.10) single-walled nanotube. similar to those of graphite. which is stronger than the sp3 bonds found in diamonds.

a machine that can produce a desired structure or device atom-by-atom using the principles of mechanosynthesis. molecular manufacturing also has the potential to revolutionize medicine. these sensors could provide very accurate diagnoses. is a term given to the concept of engineered nanosystems (nanoscale machines) operating on the molecular scale. Nanorobots could be built using molecular manufacturing to perform surgical procedures in a more precise way. sensors that are smaller than blood cells could be produced inexpensively. It is especially associated with the concept of a molecular assembler.Molecular manufacturing  molecular manufacturing. For example.     .
