Abstract: Multiwalled as well as single-walled carbon nanotubes are conveniently prepared by the pyrolysis of organometallic precursors such as metallocenes and phthalocyanines in a reducing atmosphere. More importantly, pyrolysis of organometallics alone or in mixture with hydrocarbons yields aligned nanotube bundles with useful field emission and hydrogen storage properties. By pyrolysis of organometallics in the presence of thiophene, Y-junction nanotubes are obtained in large quantities. The Y-junction tubes have a good potential in nanoelectronics. Carbon nanotubes prepared from organometallics are useful to prepare nanowires and nanotubes of other materials such as BN, GaN, SiC, and Si3N4.
