Abstract: Electronic properties of proposed new families of carbon single walled nanotubes are investigated. These nanotubes, called graphynes, result from the elongation of covalent interconnections of graphite-based nanotubes by the introduction of yne groups. Analogous to ordinary nanotubes, armchair, zigzag and chiral graphyne nanotubes are possible. Tight-binding and ab initio density functional methods were used to predict the electronic properties of these unusual nanotubes. Of the three graphyne nanotube families analysed here, two provide metallic behaviour for armchair tubes and either metallic or semiconducting behaviour for zigzag nanotubes. For the other graphyne nanotube family investigated a diameter and chirality independent bandgap is predicted and a bandgap modulation study by structural distortions has been carried out for small longitudinal tube deformations. Interestingly, while the bandgap is insensitive to structure, the stress-induced bandgap changes can strongly depend both on the nanotube type and whether the strain is tensile or compressive.
