4DescriptionAbstract Electrolytically prepared carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were obtained from normal graphite in LiCl-1% SnCl2 melt at 600 oC about 5 h. The carbon consumption for nanotube formation was observed visually and the same may occurs at the graphite cathode due to erosion during the electrolysis. X-Ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microcopy (SEM) studies have shown similar features between these electrolytic carbon nanotubes and those prepared by other methods. In addition, it has been noticed that the temperature and nature of the molten salts play an important role in determining the quantity and quality of the graphite-nanotube conversion.
