About this work
Digital artwork depicting boron nitride nanotubes (purple/green/orange hexagonal structures). A microscope and binary code are visible in the background. Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) are structurally similar to carbon nanotubes but with significantly different chemical and physical properties. Like carbon, boron nitride can form a 2-dimensional sheet one atom thick, which can roll up to form a tubular nanostructure. They are being investigated for use in biomedical and medical applications such as drug delivery, neutron capture therapy (a type of radiotherapy used to treat some cancers) and for their use in biomaterials.
