Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers say they have created carbon nanotubes without using a metal catalyst. The scientists said their finding that oxides, as well as metals, can grow carbon nanotubes changes science's understanding of nanotube growth. Carbon nanotubes -- tiny tubes of graphite -- promise to add speed to electronic circuits and strength to materials such as carbon composites that are used in airplanes and race cars.
