# Differentiate Between Swnt and Mwnt . - Applied Chemistry 1

Short Note

Differentiate between SWNT and MWNT .

#### Solution

 SWNT MWNT 1.It consists of single layer of graphene It consists of multiple layer of graphene 2. Catalyst is required for synthesis of SWNT . MWNT can be produced without the help of catalyst 3. Bulk synthesis is difficult as it requires proper control over growth and atmospheric condition . Bulk synthesis is easy . 4. A chance of defect is more during functionalization . A chance of defect is less but once occurred it is difficult to improve . 5. It can be twisted easily and are more pliable . It cannot be easily twisted 6. I t causes less accumulation in body . It causes more accumulation in body .
