We discussed the exciting materials nanotubes in this outline and the study being carried out on our part. We discussed the materials that are suitable for manufacturing, their processing techniques and exotic applications with supported few references. Here this abstract aims to define the basic principle of nanotubes that is their definition, basic chemical and physical properties, their applications, their fabrication process in details and their future prospect. Nanotubes hold the key in the next generation of technological developments especially in case of electronic equipment’s and energy storage.

Nano is associated with anything in the dimensional range of nanometers (1/10^9 meter). A nanowire is a long cylindrical specimen having diameter in the range of few nanometers with an unconstrained length. Nanotubes are similarly hollow nanowires and consists of tubes of 1 atom wall thickness. As a whole we work with material properties in bulk and the quantum effects of atoms were averaged out. With nanotubes and nanowires we work with materials in single dimension and atoms start exerting significant quantum effect on mechanical properties and a wide range of new properties and applications are being discovered.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are constructed with length-to-diameter ratio of up to (1.32 × 108):1, which is significantly larger than any other material. The radius of nanotube is in the order of few nanometres, while they can be up to 18
