Abstract: The desire to know the internal composition and structure of matter and to unfold the hidden secret behind the formation of universe is universal quality of human being. The new and hot technology which encompasses many areas such as Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, etc. is called nanotechinology which is big issues for big brains though it is small. Do you ever wonder about our future? Do you ever imagine how discoveries could make the impossible a reality? Do you ever wish you had cures for threatening diseases at hand? Nanotechnology, the ability to inexpensively arrange atoms in most of the patterns permitted by physical law – often called the manufacturing technology of the 21st century – is expected to revolutionize essentially all manufactured products, from computers to medical instruments, from cars to solar cells to batteries to planes and rockets. Carbon nanotubes, nanotechnology’s dream materials and the corner stone of nanotechnology because of their superior electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties which have novel appilications in every day to day life. CNTs may become the rst appilications to truly transform nanotechnology from an exciting science with great potential to a real technolgy or products. The main objective of this project works are to focus on some relevant issues :  What is Fullerene and Carbon nanotubes?  What is the structure and unusal properties of CNTs?  How CNTS synthesised, Some potential appilications and potential risks
