In this article, we report C60 Fullerene Nano Cylindrical Tubes (FNCT). The FNCTs were synthesized by a liquid-liquid interface precipitation (LLIP) method using m-Xylene as a saturating solvent and TBA (Tetra butyl alcoholic) as precipitation agent leading to the formation of FNCTs with uniquely structured and well oriented size and shape. The experiment was conducted in a closed atmosphere maintaining a low temperature. The main advantage of these structures is that they are stable up to 5 months in normal room temperature. Characterizations were done to the FNCTs and concluded to have applications in the field of electronics. Enhanced semiconducting properties have been observed in the nanostructures which can be used in the application of solar cells, FET transistors, etc.
