Carbon nanotubes are synthesized by using chemical vapor deposition method in which Iron, Nickel and Cobalt are used as catalyst. By chemical vapor deposition decomposition of acetylene is achieved at 850°C and the carbon was deposited on different substrates (Glass and Silicon) in the presence of catalyst for the carbon nanotube growth. The effect of different metal catalysts on the growth of the carbon nanotubes is studied by the experiment performed. The carbon nanotubes synthesized by different catalysts on different substrates are characterized using Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The experimental work for the synthesis of CNTs is performed at MRC, MNIT Jaipur. In this paper, the synthesis of carbon nanotubes is reported and also their fabrication and characterization. The reported procedure for the synthesis of carbon nanotubes is a five step process for CVD in order to obtain a high yield and purity..
