      Abstract:

      Nanotubular bells: A simple route to a uranyl   diphosphonate with an elliptical nanotubular structure has been   developed (see picture; C black, O red, Cs blue, F yellow,   UO7 green pentagonal bipyramids, phosphonate violet   tetrahedra). The interior of the nanotubules provides a different   chemical environment than the exterior with regards to the   exchange of Cs+ cations for Ag+ cations,   thus demonstrating that uranyl nanotubules are functional   materials.
