Novel morphologies of carbon nanotubes obtained through solvothermal reaction of various chlorinated solvents in the presence of various catalysts. The reaction mixture including C2Cl4 as solvent and ferrocene as catalyst exhibited the most interesting novel arrangements of carbon nanotubes. Therefore, more characterizations such as Raman spectroscopy and thermogravimetry analysis were performed on the mentioned sample for further investigation on novel pine-tree-like morphology of carbon nanostructures.
