Two tenninal electrical measurements of freestanding multiwalled carbon nanotubes employing tunnelling contacts have been made. Previous electrical characterisation on both single and multiwalled carbon nanotubes have revealed a zero bias anomaly, in which the current is characterised by a power law (loc: yz+l). In the case of single wall nanotubes this behaviour has been explained within Luttinger liquid theory, the strong repulsive electron-electron interactions found in one dimension causing Fermi liquid theory to break down. The origin
