Carbon nanotubes are very important class of carbon materials which have a variety of applications. Synthesis of these materials in bulk at low cost is of both industrial and academic interest at present. Presently, we have synthesized CNTs using dc-arc discharge between two graphite rods in water bath at different voltage and current conditions and characterized by SEM, RAMAN, TEM methods to optimize the appropriate growth conditions to achieve good quality and high yield CNTs.
