The structure of different carbon nanotubes grown without catalyst has been investigated and compared with graphite using XANES (X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure) spectroscopy at the carbon K edge using surface-sensitive total electron yield technique. The surface and bonding properties (π* and σ* bands of sp2 coordinate) are identified looking at the pre-edge features, while the structural characteristics of these materials have been identified looking at the structures in the multiple-scattering region of their XANES spectra. © Physica Scripta 2005.
