Single walled carbon nanotubes have been filled with a variety of metal oxides and the structural and morphological characteristics of the metal_oxide@SWNT composites studied. Advanced techniques of software aberrations correction for transmission electron microscopy were used for characterisation. This research shows that, despite their higher reactivity compared to salts such as halides, oxides can be encapsulated within SWNTs with some compounds attaining remarkable filling yields.
