The changes of the physical properties of carbon nanotubes caused the suface adsorption of atoms and simple molecules

Atom physics and physics of clusters and nanostructures

The research of the processes of adsorption of oxygen and fluorine atoms and oxygen and hydrogen molecules has been carried out in the framework of the semi-empirical quantum-chemical calculated scheme MNDO. It has been shown that carbon nanotubes display chiral adsorption effect in relation to the adsorption of atoms and molecules on its surface.
