A star is born: Size-selected, end-functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes react with amine-terminated dendrimers to form star-shaped objects (see schematic representation). Analysis of the nanotube stars by atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy show that they exhibit a peculiar response to electron beams.
