Method of fluorinating carbon nanotubes developed

Vik writes "Rice University in cooperation with the Russian Academy of Science develop a way to add fluorine to nanotubes. This gives a handle to which functional groups can be attached with obvious repercussions. The process involves temperatures of 500C and pressures of 60,000 ATM. Press release from Rice is here."

Patrick Underwood submitted an article from Space Daily that provides some additional coverage of this annoucement.
