    The research of the development of carbon nanotube electrodes based on sesame oil soot and their application in electrochemical double layer capacitors has been conducted. Carbon nanotube was prepared by plasma pyrolysis of sesame oil with or without hydrothermally - catalytic treatment. XRD showed the existence of carbon crystal in 2Ɵ = 24º and 45°. FTIR patterns showed that O – H, C = O and C = C groups existed on the surface of the carbon. Carbon pore structure measurement showed the pore surface area was 592,3 m2g-1 which was dominated by micropore. The conductivity was 0.1 – 1 The existence of carbon nanotube was confirmed by SEM image with percentage of C and O were respectively 88.82 % dan 11.18 %. The electrochemical properties were tested in 3-electrode system with H2SO4, KOH dan NaNO3 as electrolytes. Cyclic voltammetry showed that the highest capacitance was 0,0251Fg-1.
