    Nanotubes reveal their potential: The fabrication of a thin film that retains isolated singlewalled nanotubes (SWNTs) allows the experimental determination of the redox potentials of many individual SWNTs that have different chirality indexes (n,m). The method is simple and applicable to all individual SWNTs whose near-IR photoluminescence (PL) is detectable (see picture).
