A simple two-stage technique for producing turbostratic carbon nanotubes via the co-electrospinning of two polymer solutions is described. These strong carbon nanotubes (see Figure) can be produced in lengths of the order of 10 cm while still maintaining submicrometer inner and outer diameters. They can be used in numerous applications, such as in drug delivery, hydrogen storage, and microfluidics.
