Qiongwei et al. used a route for synthesizing vertically aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with branched nanotubes.

They presented a way to generate aligned branched CNTs with high content up to 30 % by pyrolyzing FePc with the existence of thiol at 800-900 °C and used SEM ,TEM to characteristic ,at last ,they established the growth mechanism of the branched nanotubes.

The as-prepared samples provided a suitable candidate to investigate the special electrical or thermal properties of CNTs with branched structures further.
