Paper Abstract

In this paper structural studies on multiwall carbon nanotubes by wide-angle neutron scattering are reported. Analysis of the neutron scattering data in both reciprocal and real space and a comparison with the graphite and turbostatic carbon data shows the perfect hexagonal structure within a single graphene sheet and short-range graphite-like interlayer correlation in multiwalled carbon nanotubes. As the interatomic distances increase a systematic departure from the perfect graphitic structure is observed.
