This paper will report on the synthesization of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) from palm oil precursor and ferrocene as catalyst source by single zone thermal CVD system at various deposition temperature ranging from 600-1000°C. Direct heat was used to vaporize both fixed parameter of precursor and catalyst placed in the middle of quartz tube. Field emission scanning electron microscopy was used to obtain the image of CNTs which showed different structures and diameters of CNTs relative to the deposition temperature of furnace. Raman Spectroscopy and energy dispersive X-ray were then used to further study the crystallinity, weight percentage and identification of samples.
