Scholarcy highlights

  • Using the same experimental set-up as for the solar production of fullerenes, we can produce carbon nanotubes by direct vaporization of a mixture of powdered carbon and catalyst
  • The structure of the nanotubes is strongly dependent on the experimental conditions and we can obtain either multi-walled nanotubes or ropes of single-walled nanotubes
