The spatial pattern of centerpoint distance variation for the hexagonally partitioned Fuller-Gray projection surface is not easily discerned at the lowest level of recursion (upper-left map), but becomes readily visible at the next two higher levels.
After ruling out simpler but unstable structures, Cohen and Liu used a supercomputer to analyze a possible carbon-nitrogen structure based on a real crystal made of hexagonally arranged silicon and nitrogen atoms in a 3:4 ratio.
Regardless of many similarities of heat flow mechanism in graphite and MWCNTs, a high density hexagonally packed MWCNT structure must have a much lower anisotropy of thermal and electrical conductivity due to a contribution of the circumferential bypass pathway to perpendicular thermal conductivity.
