TEM observations show that for nanotube walls rooted in the catalysts particles, the graphitic walls reside at step sites [21, 52]. They also show that active catalyst particles during growth exhibit liquid-like properties while still retaining solid properties (lattice fringes are clearly observed). This liquid-like behavior does not answer a controversial area for both floating catalysts and supported catalysts, namely, does carbon delivery to a growing graphitic wall occur through bulk diffusion or surface diffusion.

Takagi et al. [65] showed the ceramic catalyst concept in its full glory in a study in which they prepared nanosized Ge and Si particles on SiC and nanosized SiC in Si. In all cases they successfully synthesized SWNT. More recently Huang et al. showed that one can actually grow SWNT from SiO2, Al2O3, and TiO2 on supports confirming the work by R€ ummeli et al. Often these ceramic techniques are referred to as catalyst free, however, other techniques in which CNT are formed from the vapor phase without a catalytic particle or catalytic support are more aptly described as “catalyst-free” synthesis routes.
