A setup and growth technology for manufacturing carbon nanotubes by the catalytic gas-phase pyrolysis of ethanol are described. The basic temperature ranges of the reaction for manufacturing carbon nanotubes are elucidated. Atomic force microscopy and transmission electron microscopy are used to analyze carbon nanotube growth during the catalytic gas-phase pyrolysis of ethanol.
