Subsequent to their first perception more than two decades ago, Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have formed the epicenter for numerous important studies. Various researchers and scientists have stated striking bodily and perfunctory features for this unique form of carbon. These exhibit one of a kind microelectronic features and thermal conductivity greater than diamond and also mechanical features where the mechanical and electrical features, quality and flexibility surpasses any present material, study of CNTs offers many options for the improvement on a very basic level of new material frameworks. Specifically, the excellent mechanical features of CNTs, consolidated with their small width, propose degree aimed at advancement of Nanotube strengthened compound resources. The scope for nanocomposites strengthened with carbon tubes having remarkable improved mechanical features offer a lot of scope of rapid development in the field of science. This research study gives compact assessment of late developments in CNTs and related compounds. Also presented in this paper are details regarding configuration and handling of CNTs.
Keywords: CNTs, Characterization of Nanotubes, Single and Multi Wall CNTs
