“On-surface” synthesis of large molecules and assemblies is a great challenge in molecular electronics, biomedical devices, sensors, energy harnessing and catalysis. Usually, plane surfaces are used for these purposes. We study a possibility of macro molecules formation on the surface of nanotube and inside it. It can be used for synthesis of helix molecules, particularly, organic and biological. Nanotubes of different structures were considered. Point-like approximation is used for atoms. The Lennard-Jones 6-12 potential is taken as the interaction potential. Possibilities of helix molecules and ring-like molecules formations were shown. A hypothesis of such processes influence on the organic molecules formation during the early Earth history is suggested and discussed.
