Abstract. Carbon nanotubes have attracted the fancy of many scientists world-
wide. The small dimensions, strength and the remarkable physical properties of
these structures make them a very unique material with a whole range of promis-
ing applications. In this review we describe some of the important materials sci-
ence applications of carbon nanotubes. Specifically we discuss the electronic and
electrochemical applications of nanotubes, nanotubes as mechanical reinforcements
in high performance composites, nanotube-based field emitters, and their use as
