Abstract

A method is presented which allows the study of diameter selective reactions in single-wall carbon nanotubes with an unprecedented accuracy. It is based on the transformation of fullerene peapods into double-wall carbon nanotubes and the study of the resulting diameter distribution of the inner nanotubes with Raman spectroscopy. This yields a spectral resolution increase of about 40 for the modes of different tubes. The method is demonstrated for the diameter selective healing of nanotube defects and yield from C70 peapod samples. The growth of very small diameter inner tubes from C70 peapods is demonstrated, which challenges the models of inner nanotube formation. An anomalous absence of middiameter inner tubes is explained by the suppressed amount of C70 peapods in the transition region between standing and lying C70 configurations.
