The synthesis of @MWCNT was carried out at room temperature () from arc-discharge prepared Multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). They were oxidized and acid treated for tube opening. Then molecules were encapsulated into MWCNTs by wetting them with -toluene solution for several minutes followed by ultrasonification. @MWCNT was cleaned by pure toluene to remove any excess . @MWCNT was characterized by electron microscopy, which showed large scale filling of into MWCNTs. It was observed that the mechanism of insertion of into MWCNTs may be due to the capillary suction at the opening ends of MWCNTs.
