Based on the high resolution TEM observations, we report here on the non-concentric growth phenomena of carbon nanotubes from the arc-discharge. We also report on a novel form of carbon nanoclusters - the strings of carbon nanobeads - produced by the catalytic arc-discharge with Ni as the catalyst, and on the bundles of single-walled carbon nanotubes, synthesized with YC2 as the catalyst, growing radially out from YC2 particles.
