The increasing number of reports on regularly curved carbon nanotube-type architectures makes it increasingly important to understand the structure of these nano-objects, to predict their properties, and to get insight in the way they form. The present work attempts to explore some properties of regularly curved carbon nanotube by combining structural modeling, mechanical calculations, and experimental high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) data.
