Due to their unique physical and electronic properties carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have induced great interests among researchers since their discovery. Several techniques such as catalytic vapor deposition (CVD), HiPCO, arc discharge, laser ablation, etc. are now available as possible synthesis methods for carbon nanotube production. However, increasing gap between world demand and production capacity is imperative in achieving industrial scale production of carbon nanotubes of good quality and purity. With further optimization of growth conditions, the synthesis of carbon nanotubes can be successfully controlled. Overcoming these difficulties might certainly help their commercial use in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

All manuscripts should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to the Guest Editor. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
