Immense development has been taken place not only to increase the bulk production, repeatability and yield of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in last 25 years but preference is also given to acknow ledge the basic concepts of nucleation and growth methods. Vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) are forest of CNTs accommodated perpendicular on a substrate. Their exceptional chemical and physical properties along with sequential arrangement and d ense structure make them suitable in various fields. The effect of different type of selected substrate, ca rbon precursor, catalyst and their physical and chemical st atus, reaction conditions and many other key parameters have been thoroughly studied and analysed . The aim of this paper is to specify the trend and summarize the effect of key parameters instead of only presenting all the experiments reported till date. The identified trends will be compared with the recent observations on the growth of diffe rent types of patterned VACNTs.
