We perform ab initio calculations on the self-assembled base-functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) which exhibit the quasi-1D ‘ladder' structure. The optimized configuration in the ab initio calculation is very similar to that obtained from molecular dynamics simulation. We also calculate the electronic structures of the self-assembled base-functionalized SWNTs that exhibit distinct difference from the single-branch base-functionalized SWNT with a localized state lying just below the Fermi level, which may result from the coupling interaction between the bases accompanied by the self-assembly behaviour.
