Abstract: As-prepared single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are generally mixtures of semiconducting and metallic species, the proportion of the former being around 67%. Since most applications of SWNTs are best served by semiconducting or metallic nanotubes, rather than by mixtures of the two, methods which would directly yield semiconducting and metallic SWNTs in pure form are desirable. In this article, we present the available methods for the direct synthesis of such SWNTs along with the methods available to separate semiconducting and metallic SWNTs from mixtures. We also discuss the synthesis of Y-junction carbon nanotubes.
