Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have received great consideration owing to their vital features sizes and prospective uses, despite their restricted obtainability cause their big manufacture budget. In the present research, the substitute method may cause dropping the industrial fees of CNTs by means of the use of the chemical vapor deposition technique. For this aim aliphatic-Alcohol's mixture (ethanol, 2-propanol) is utilized as the carbon source. Crystallographic and morphological of multi-walled carbon nanotubes have been categorized exhausting powder X-ray deflection, thermal gravimetric examination, scanning electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. The outcomes indicate that produced MWNTs have a pureness of 57.80%, an exterior diameter of 6.6-17.9 nm, an interior diameter of 3.2-6.3 nm, where is equivalent to 3-9 graphene covers, and a tube size of 0.8 to 2 μm.
