The structural stability of carbon nanotori have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics simulations. The systems considered are C-170, C-250, C-360, C-520 and C-750 tori, which have been constructed using a recently developed algorithm based on the idea of Fonseca et al. Calculations, have been realized by using an empirical many-body potential energy function for carbon. It has been found that all the nanotori considered are stable under heat treatment.
