Description: Chemical vapour deposition (CVD) allows the synthesis of high purity nanotubes of controlled length and diameter. The nanotubes in this specimen were formed in the heated zone of the apparatus whilst using ferrocene dissolved in toluene. The fibres are of high purity and their diameters range from 400 to 500 nm.
