Modification of carbon nanostructures by different chemical elements opens an opportunity for synthesis of materials of a new generation for different applications. Filling carbon nanotubes with one or other element will allow for conferring different mechanical, electrical, magnetic and other physical and chemical properties on the nanotubes. This work demonstrates a possibility to produce such materials by the new proposed by authors method for synthesis of carbon nanostructures using arc evaporation of materials in liquid medium. The possibility to produce chlorine-filled nanostructures is illustrated by the example of synthesis in chlorine-containing media. The possibility to produce chlorine-filled carbon nanostructures by the arc synthesis of nanostructures in the liquid phase has been demonstrated. The proposed method may be one of the most efficient methods for synthesis of carbon nanostructures.
