Abstract

The discovery of the spontaneous charging of single-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) during their aerosol (floating catalyst) synthesis is reported. The charging phenomenon was surprisingly correlated to the process of the CNT bundle formation in the gas phase, while individual tubes remained electrically neutral.
