Abstract

Nanotubes are one‐dimensional nanomaterials with all atoms located near the surface. This article provides a brief review on the possible growth mechanisms of a series of inorganic nanotubes, in particular, vertically‐aligned (VA) carbon nanotubes (CNTs), boron nitridenanotubes (BNNTs), and ZnO nanotubes (ZnO NTs).
