We report a simple and facile solid-state approach to large-scale synthesis of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MCNTs), for the first time, by one-step direct thermolysis of a metal-organic framework [Ni(3)(btc)(2).12H(2)O] (btc = benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylato) in a one-end closed conventional horizontal tube furnace under relatively low temperature without using any additional carrier gas or catalyst.
