Multiwalled carbon nanotubes have been prepared by pyrolysing tetrahydrofuran (THF) in the presence of nickelocene. Pyrolysis of the precursor mixture has been achieved at temperature as low as $600^o C$. In this simple approach no carrier gas has been used. The yield of purified carbon nanotubes is found to be more than 65 \%. Characterization of the as-prepared and purified nanotubes are done by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and Raman spectra.
