In this study, we report the synthesis of carbon nanotubes by ethanol catalytic chemical vapor deposition, which employs ferrocene as the catalyst precursors and ethanol as carbon source. We obtained massive deposits. The deposits were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and visual laser Raman spectroscopy. We discussed the effects of synthesis temperature on the synthesis of carbon nanotubes by floating catalytic chemical vapor deposition. Our results indicated that the synthesis temperature could affect not only on the graphitization degree, but also on the aligned growth of carbon nanotubes and the diameter of carbon nanotubes.
