The fabrication of hollow carbon nanotubes using co-electrospinning polyacrylonitrile/poly (methyl methacrylate) was presented. The set-up consisted of core and shell capillaries in which the core capillary was stainless steel needle. The solutions were subjected to an electrostatic field of about 0.3 kV cm-1. The results show the formation of microtubes whose structures provide extremely high confinement volumes.
