I have removed the reference to , as it's not appropriate to link to a homepage of a website (it frequently changes, making it a poor reference). I've also addded a number of citation needed tags where appropriate. Mike Peel 19:55, 21 October 2006 (UTC)
Following Wikipedia:Verifiability, I have removed the following points as they are unreferenced. If references for them can be found, then they can be added back to the article.
- Nanotube transistor created at Delft and IBM.
- As of 2003, nanotubes cost from 20 euro per gram to 1000 euro per gram, depending on purity, composition (single-wall, double-wall, multi-wall) and other characteristics.
- Industry reports indicate nanotube production will increase by 10 to 100 times in the next five years for different types and purity of nanotubes.
- Prices halve in one year to €1.67 per gram in quantities of 1 kg as MWNT, >50 nm diameter, 50 micrometers long.
NB: for the last point, see the section above. Mike Peel 10:02, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
can somebody update the link for reference 11? new link: http://www.almaden.ibm.com/st/past_projects/nanotubes/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 19:48, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
nothing more since august 2006 ?
In a bycicle, really ??
"July — Nanotubes were alloyed into the carbon fiber bike that won the 2006 Tour de France" From the cited (newspaper) article "[...] the bikes ridden by the Phonak team have nanotubes swirled into the frame--a first, according to their Swiss manufacturer, BMC."
This sounds to me very much like pure marketing.. Let's sprinkle some magic *nanodust* over it .. Could somebody verify that this not the case? Is there any supported technical relevance of the nanotubes in a bike? --Jaapkroe (talk) 22:58, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
It's factually incorrect anyway as Floyd Landis was later disqualified from the competition for using forbidden substances. I'd say remove this mention altogether. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:35, 11 April 2012 (UTC)
Process for creating ultra long SWNT developed in China
In 2009 a group at Peking University announced having produced SWNT of up to 18.5 cm. I have seen nothing about the research since. Can anyone confirm this or provide an update?
