Abstract.

Carbon nanomaterials seem to be most attractive because of their fascinating features. Carbon nanotubes emerged recently as unique nanostructures with remarkable mechanical and electronic properties. Future applications will require a fabrication method capable of producing uniform carbon nanotubes with well-defined and controllable reproducibility of their properties. In this review, recent results addressing rational and efficient methods to obtain aligned arrays of these one-dimensional carbon nanomaterials will be discussed.
