Abstract: AbstractA new class of low-angle conical carbon crystals has been described and their characteristics are reported here. These carbon nanocones were found in pores of a glassy carbon (GC) along with cylindrical multiwall nanotubes and graphite polyhedral crystals. The largest cones reach 2 to 3 microns in length, although most are in the submicron range. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) reveals cones protruding from the inner pore surfaces with the tips oriented toward the inside of the pores. Transmission E…
