Parameters of carbon nanotubes extracted through plants:
You can’t underestimate the potential and strength of these little carbon nanotubes which are much more tinier than a human hair but if you get to know the power of it, you will get into wonders. Those items which are produced with the assistance and usage of carbon nanotubes are powerful rechargeable batteries which handles huge megawatt electronic items, sports items in which concreteness and tightness is must, wind turbines that must be enough capable to produce energy. All these products which are providing a great value are result of carbon nanotubes.
Uses of carbon nanotubes:
The use and significance of carbon nanotubes are not just limited to above mentioned products but also it can be widely used in agricultural medicines, making medicines to cure different diseases and to figure out space activities too. All these major roles can be done with it effectively which is enough to define it’s worth and importance. As technology is getting more advanced so researchers and producers are working on these nanotubes to make it eco-friendly and more profitable by making it more valuable.
To precisely and consciously analyzing the benefits we can get from carbon nanotubes, a research has been made. They have set some different models of nanotube in some plant tissues to figure out and measure it’s levels and density for future decision making. But the reason of this experiment or research was to identify it’s impacts and consequences on human health and natural environment when it get exposed their as previously it has proved as a great manufacturing agent but now researchers are afraid to check it on food industry and environment as it can be harsh and harmful. To avoid this risk they added lettuce leaves along with carbon nanotubes to minimize it’s hazardous effect and precisely evaluation of each leave and substance. This idea was quite effective to get expected results in least damaging way. Yang also elaborated that their only purpose was to produce such result that can be effective for human beings and their environment
The major and hectic challenge Yang and his team faced while experimenting carbon nanotube was to differentiate and separate the carbon of carbon nanotube and carbon which is present in every living creature. The carbon molecules that are present in it’s creation and imitation which is used in the formation of medicines and other relevant products. In the beginning phase of research, they had no idea that only by adding a single molecule, it will get more effective for plants and it’s growth.
Another research is made which was named as programmed thermal analysis, this research was done to figure out different reactions and abilities of different forms of carbon nanotubes by placing them on heat on different temperature and environment to analyze how they react differently from each other. Upon these researches, it can be find out which material Is more heat resistant and which is less.
Yang is now more focused to do more extensive and thorough research based on carbon molecules without lettuce and with more advanced methods to get the desired results. He believes that for the development of better and progressive environment and great health measures, it is necessary to introduce the advanced versions of carbon nanotubes that adds more value to our environment and field with the help of trial and error methods and experiment process which will leads the decisions makers and experts to use the valid and authentic results in their decision making and to help them get straight figures.
