Chemical reactions stimulated by γ-radiation in liquid hydrocyanic acid (HCN) in the presence of single-walled edcarbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) have been studied. The polymerization of HCN on the surface of nanotubes occurs several times more rapidly than in pure HCN, and the set of radiolysis products becomes poorer. It is likely that the approach of polymerizing reagents on the nanosized surface is limited by specific mutual orientations. Furthermore, the CN and H radicals add to the walls of the nanotubes and the nanotubes become soluble in water, ethanol, and acids.
