This paper details the synthesis and characterization of Silicon (Si) nanostructured powder with a wide variety of morphologies such as nanoparticles, nanowires, nanotubes etc., produced by DC plasma arc discharge route. These nanostructures were synthesized by controlling the synthesis parameters such as current, voltage, catalyst, gas pressure, etc The structural, morphological and vibrational properties were investigated using X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, nitrogen
