Abstract

Synthesis, characterization, and properties of graphite tubules (buckytubes) and their derivatives are reported based from transmission electron microscopy (TEM) observations. The proposed mechanism that buckytubes act as precursors to closed shell fullerene (buckyballs) formation is indirectly confirmed with a set of critical arc evaporation experiments using residue-rod as starting anode for fullerene production. A clear correlation was found between the amount of buckytubes in the rod and the fullerene yield.
