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.
