We report the formation of bamboo-shaped carbon-nitrogen nanotubes by employing a simple, one-step and economically viable spray pyrolysis technique using new precursor; acetonitrile and ferrocene solution. By varying the concentration of ferrocene with respect to acetonitrile, it has been found that the optimum concentration of ferrocene in acetonitrile is 5 mg/ml. The special feature of the as-synthesized bamboo-shaped carbon-nitrogen nanotubes bundles is that they are produced in a high yield (1.25 gms/run). They also have long linear extents (~430 m) and are very clean. The average composition of carbon-nitrogen nanotubes comes out to be C26N.
