    Coral-like carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been synthesized by using chemical vapor deposition. Unlike conventional CNTs, the as-deposited CNT consisted of a high density of interlaced graphitic nanoflakes of about 5 nm in thickness. The CNTs had a bamboo-like internal structure with their outer...
