Carbon nanotubes production by a cracking of liquid hydrocarbons was discussed. This process is driven by a self-regulated low-voltage AC/DC contact arc discharge and/or a resistive heating. Results showed that a unique geometry of electrode system allows a continuous production of the dense deposits with a yield of 1-3 g/min and specific consumption of electric energy of 25-50 kW-h/kg of the deposit.
