Abstract and Keywords

This article describes the new phenomena of chemical substances encapsulated in the hollow spaces of carbon nanotubes, with particular emphasis on the nanospace of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) that have nanospaces of about 1 nm in diameter. It begins with a brief introduction to the filling methods and the filling of multiwalled carbon nanotubes, followed by a discussion of the structures, phase transitions and chemical reactions of some typical fullerenes, endohedral metallofullerenes, fullerene derivatives, and inorganic and organic compounds, in the nanospace of SWNTs. The electron transfer between dopants and SWNTs is also examined. The article also considers the filling of double-walled carbon nanotubes.

Keywords: chemical substances, carbon nanotubes, single-wall carbon nanotubes, nanospaces, filling, multiwalled carbon nanotubes, phase transitions, fullerenes, electron transfer, double-walled carbon nanotubes
