Calculations were made of the behavior of O2 molecules interacting with perfect nanotubes. It was indicated that an O2 molecule in the triplet state was only physisorbed on a nanotube or a graphene sheet, either perfect or with a Stone-Wales effect. Thus, no evidence that triplet O2 absorbed at the walls of single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs) can affect their transport properties in a way that could explain the experimental observations.
