The widely accepted growth mechanism of CNFs has the following steps: (1) decomposition of the precursor carbon-containing gases at the catalyst sites, (2) carbon incorporation into the catalysts, (3) saturation of the carbon and then precipitation out of the metal catalysts, and (4) formation of the carbon nanostructures [41,42].
Some of these parameters are: a. Catalyst particle size b. Catalyst concentration c. Pressure d. Growth time e. Growth temperature f. Gas flow rate 2.5 Growth Mechanisms of Carbon Nanotubes: MWCNT can be grown without a metal catalyst in arc discharge & laser ablation methods, whereas the metal particle is essential to synthesize MWCNT by CVD technique.
Nanoconfined Water. While the carbon nanotubes are non-polar and therefore relatively hydrophobic, water spontaneously fills them at ~8-10% humidity. The understood filling mechanism depends on the solvent's polarity, ion concentration, and the van der Waals forces between the water and the CNT.
Abstract: The growth mechanism of long and aligned single walled carbon nanotubes using a recently reported "fast heating" chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method is discussed. The effect of heating speed at the initial stage of the CVD process has been ...

Abstract. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been under intense investigations during the past two decades due to their unique physical and chemical properties; however, there is still no commonly accepted growth mechanism to describe the growth behavior of CNTs.
Straight and bamboo-like carbon nanotubes were synthesized in a methane diffusion flame using a Ni–Cr–Fe wire as a substrate. The catalyst particles were nickel and iron oxides formed on the wire surface inside the flame. When the wire was oxidized using nitric acid more nanotubes could be produced. Most nanotubes grew by a base growth mode.
A carbon nanotube (CNT) is a tubular structure made of carbon atoms, having diameter of nanometer order but length in micrometers. Right from its discovery, we have been listening exciting quotations about CNT, viz.
Synthesis of carbon nanotubes. Most of these processes take place in a vacuum or with process gases. CVD growth of CNTs can occur in vacuum or at atmospheric pressure. Large quantities of nanotubes can be synthesized by these methods; advances in catalysis and continuous growth are making CNTs more commercially viable.

The addition of H2O in super growth of single-walled carbon nanotube carpets is observed to inhibit Ostwald ripening due to the ability of oxygen and hydroxyl species to reduce diffusion rates of catalyst atoms.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been under intense investigations during the past two decades due to their unique physical and chemical properties; however, there is still no commonly accepted growth mechanism to describe the growth behavior of CNTs.
We report a numerical investigation on the catalytic growth mechanism of a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) inside a template SWNT, that is, formation of a double-walled carbon nanotube (DWNT).

Growth Mechanisms for Carbon Nanotubes . Contacts: Jean-Christophe Charlier . Introduction . Nearly fifteen years after their discovery, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are still attracting much interest for their potential applications, which largely derives from their unusual structural and electronic properties. Since all these properties are directly related to the atomic structur
Well-aligned, high-purity carbon nanotube (CNT) stacks of up to 10 layers fabricated in one batch process have been formed by water-assisted selective etching of carbon atoms. Etching takes place at the CNT caps as well as at the interface between CNTs and metal catalyst particles.
Carbon nanotube. The chemical bonding of nanotubes involves entirely sp2 -hybrid carbon atoms. These bonds, which are similar to those of graphite and stronger than those found in alkanes and diamond (which employ sp3 -hybrid carbon atoms), provide nanotubes with their unique strength.
This review article deals with the growth mechanism and mass production of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Different aspects of CNT synthesis and growth mechanism are reviewed in the light of latest progresses and understandings in the field.
