We explore the equations of state and other properties of various quantum fluids (3He, 4He, their mixtures, and H2) confined within individual carbon nanotubes. Above a threshold number of particles, Na, the fluid density near the axis begins to grow above a negligibly small value. The properties of this axial fluid phase are sensitive to the tube size and hence to the transverse compression in the case of a bundle of nanotubes. We consider He at zero temperature and H2 at low temperatures.
