Based on the continuum Lennard-Jones model, the van der Waals interaction of two concentric and eccentric carbon nanocones with different or identical sizes are investigated in this paper. Also, on the basis of classical mathematical modeling techniques, a new semi-analytical solution is given to evaluate the van der Waals potential energy and interaction force distributions of two concentric carbon nanocones. Finally, a universal potential energy is presented for the carbon nanocones.
