Organic nanotubes are desirable for their wide array of applications. We show here experimental efforts toward the modular construction of organic nanotubes, in which nanotubes of controlled size and chemical functionality were attempted through dynamic covalent chemistry (imine metathesis) and living polymerization (ring opening metathesis polymerization). The methods explored here outline several key concepts that are believed to be essential to the covalent assembly of organic nanotubes.
