C-BN Single-Walled Nanotubes from Hybrid Connection of BN/C Nanoribbons: Prediction by ab initio Density Functional Calculations
We demonstrated for the first time by ab initio density functional calculation and molecular dynamics simulation that C0.5(BN) 0.5 armchair single-walled nanotubes (NT) are gapless semiconductors and can be spontaneously formed via the hybrid connection of graphene/BN Nanoribbons (GNR/BNNR) at room temperature. The direct synthesis of armchair C0.5(BN)0.5 via the hybrid connection of GNR/BNNR is predicted to be both thermodynamically and dynamically stable. Such novel armchair C0.5(BN)0.5 NTs...[Show more]
