The reduction process of tenorite whiskers grown on a copper mesh by heating in vacuum has been directly observed using a transmission electron microscope equipped with a real-time video-recording system. The coating of the carbon layer and reduction of the tenorite whisker covered with a carbon layer have also been captured in real time on video images. The growth process of an amorphous carbon tube has been elucidated.
