Another example is that of hydrous-RuO2 nanotubes that can be potentially used for supercapacitors [52]. Polycrystalline nanotubes of the ferroelectric compound PbTiO3 were also prepared using the same technique [53]. The ferroelectric transition temperature was found to be influenced by the crystallite size and not necessarily by the diameter of the nanotube or nanofibers. In another kind of study, hollow MoS2 nanoparticles were obtained by the sonochemical reaction of Mo(CO)6 and sulfur in isodurene with silica nanospheres used as a template [54].

The first quantum-mechanical calculations of metal sulfide nanotubes were performed with the DFTB (density functional tight binding) method for MoS2 and WS2 nanotubes (see, for example, [73, 76]). The layered dichalcogenides of Mo and W have a hexagonal structure and they are characterized by MX6 units with a trigonal prismatic coordination of the metal. Due to the hexagonal structure of the layers, the tubes can be classified in the same way as carbon nanotubes, n = m armchair tubes, n > 0, m = 0 zigzag tubes and n = m chiral tubes.
