The problem of the stability and electronic properties of zigzag and armchair MoS2 nanotubes was addressed using the density-functional-based tight-binding (DFT) method. It was found that the strain energy of all the nanotubes behaves similarly to carbon nanotubes. The structure of the MoS nanotube tips and the closure of polyhedral particles were explained based on topological defects.
