Abstract

The physical properties of double-wall carbon nanotubes (DWCNT) with highly 13C enriched inner walls were studied with Raman spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). An inhomogeneous broadening of the vibrational modes is explained by the random distribution of 12C and 13C nuclei based on ab-initio calculations. The growth of DWCNTs from natural and 13C enriched fullerene mixtures indicates that carbon does not diffuse freely along the tube axis during the inner tube growth. The high curvature of the small diameter inner tubes manifests in an increased distribution of the NMR chemical shift tensor components.
