Unraveling truly one-dimensional carbon solids

Elemental carbon appears in many different forms, including diamond and graphite.Researchers have succeeded in developing a novel route for the bulk production of carbon chains composed of more than 6,000 carbon atoms, using thin double-walled carbon nanotubes as protective hosts for the chains. These findings represent an elegant forerunner towards the final goal of carbyne's bulk production.
