In the greater part of nanotubes materials, a combination of structure, topology, and dimension makes a large group of physical properties such as mechanical, magnetic, thermal, and electrochemical that is resembled by barely any known materials. A short rundown will be given of the astonishing structural and electronic properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), which are nanoscopic configurational of subatomic measurements as cylinders with approximately 20 carbon molecules around the edge of the cylinders and microns long. Carbon nanotubes can demonstrate remarkable electrical and thermal conductivity, exceptional tensile strength, chemical inertness, also low density, low dimensionality, and briefly, all these and other properties make it outstanding material for many potential applications especially technology industries, for example, in electronics, optics, medicine, gene and drug delivery, composite materials, nanotechnology, and other application of material science. In addition, parameters of CNTs like structure, surface area, charge distribution, surface chemistry, and agglomeration state have a significant effect on these materials. Besides this, other remarkable and unique properties, as observed in their vibrational spectra and in their strength and stiffness. Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes, have motivated researches and are already finding practical applications in various fields based on their unique properties. Herein, we will talk about morphology, topology, different production methods, chemical modification and characterization, and some potential applications of nanotubes in recent future.
