Controlled nitrogen-doping is a powerful methodology to modify the properties of carbon nanostructures and produce functional materials for electrocatalysis, energy conversion and storage, and sensing, among others. Herein, we report a wall- and hybridisation-selective synthetic methodology to produce double-walled carbon nanotubes with an inner tube doped exclusively with graphitic sp2-nitrogen atoms. Our measurements shed light on the fundamental properties of nitrogen-doped nanocarbons opening the door for developing their potential applications.
