Abstract It is difficult to obtain a nanotube from phosphorus with a 3sp 2 electron configuration by chemical synthesis. However, a physical fabrication approach, such as self-assembly, is worth trying. In an experiment, when using a carbon nanotube (CNT) to trigger self-assembly of a black phosphorus (BP) ribbon, the final configuration of the BP component may be sensitive to the initial relative position of the CNT to the BP ribbon. For instance, using the same CNT with different initial relative positions to the BP ribbon, the BP ribbon may finally become a nanotube, or a scroll, or just wind upon the CNT, or escape from the CNT, etc. In this study, the sensitivity is investigated using molecular dynamics simulations. Numerical results illustrate some essentials for potential fabrication of a BP nanotube from ribbon.
