Wide spectra of carbon nanomaterials (nanodiamonds, nanotubes, fullerene-like structures, and amorphous carbon) are fabricated by means of the techniques based on exploding wires and electric breakdown of hydrocarbon liquids. There is an effective possibility to control the phase composition of the synthesis products by means of a variation of both the time-energy parameters of an explosion process and the operating-liquid type. The fact of fabrication of the fullerene-like clusters without the use of graphite as a material for the synthesis is revealed. As shown, the carbon nanomaterials have strong ferromagnetic properties comparable with ones of typical ferromagnetics.
