Differentiate between single-walled carbon nano-tube and multi-walled carbon nano-tube

The difference between the single-walled carbon nanotube and multi-walled carbon nano-tube are as follows-

Single-walled carbon nano-tube Multi-walled carbon nano-tube
SWNT is made up by rolling a graphene sheet into a seamless cylinder. MWNT is made up by the concentration of carbon nanotubes.
SWNT require optimization of experimental parameters for synthesis. MWNT are synthesized easily. The may be found in the emission of LPG or propane based fuels.
The internal diameter is comparatively smaller(approximately 5-10nm). They have well-ordered graphite structures.
SWNT bare used in electronics, water filtration, hydrogen storage, oil spill removal etc. MWNT have comparatively fewer applications.
