This article is devoted to the analysis of a carbon nanotube, a functionalized b-carboxyl group of a carbon nanotube and a gadolinium-doped carbon nanotube. Were analyzed the structure, purity, quality, and surface morphology, as well as the homogeneity (heterogeneity) of nanotubes. The analysis of a carbon nanotube were performed using a scanning electron microscope (SEM), energy dispersive analysis (EXD), X-ray diffraction analysis, Raman scattering, and IR luminescence. It was found that 10% doping with gadolinium strongly affects the physical properties of carbon nanotubes functionalized by a carboxyl group.
