The standard methods for single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) production rely on co-vaporization of graphite and transition metal catalysts in an inert gas atmosphere, either by an electrical arc [1,2] or by laser vaporization . During the last three years, however, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) using hydrocarbons as
Highly pure single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with their contents >96% of the total products were achieved by chemical vapour deposition gas ﬂow reactions using ethanol as the carbon source. The high purity SWNTs were formed under critically controlled synthesis conditions and by applying
Continuous ﬂow chemical vapour deposition of carbon nanotube sea urchins† Jean de La Verpilliere,a Sarah Jessl,a Khuzaimah Saeed,a Caterina Ducati,b Michael De Voldera and Adam Boies *a Hybrid structures consisting of functional materials enhanced by carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have potential
3.2. Catalytic CVD synthesis of carbon nanotubes For catalytic CVD synthesis of carbon nanotubes, the effects of CVD processing parameters such as substrate temperature on the diameter of the carbon nanotubes or ﬁbers has been systematically studied. In Fig. 3, the size of the carbon ﬁber vs. the deposition temperature are shown.
Abstract Multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) ﬁla-ments were grown by catalytic chemical vapor deposition on 2-D weave carbon ﬁber (CF) cloth substrates. Two different sets of experiments were carried out to understand the growth mechanism of these ﬁlaments. In the ﬁrst set of experiments where CF cloths were coated with the cata-
20111031Posted: Oct 31, 2011: Argument that catalyst poisoning halts carbon nanotube growth needs reexamination (Nanowerk Spotlight) Although a wide variety of methods have been developed to fabricate carbon nanotubes (CNTs), including arc discharge, laser ablation, and chemical vapor deposition (CVD), CVD is the most technically important - since it can be achieved at low temperature and is
tiscale Modeling of Carbon Nanotube Synthesis in Chemical Vapour Deposition Re-actor. The bottom-up analysis of Carbon Nanotube synthesis is not well understood. Speci cally, the question as to how carbon adsorbs to a substrate inclusive of a sup-ported catalyst may lead to the energetically favorable structure of a hexagonal close-
Carbon nanotube grafted carbon fibers (CNT-g-CFs) were prepared continuously, spool to spool, via thermal CVD. The application of an in-situ potential difference (300 V), between the fibers and a cylindrical graphite foil counter electrode, enhanced the growth, producing a uniform coverage of carbon nanotubes with diameter ca. 10 nm and length ca. 125 nm.
Carbon Nanotube Aerogels** By Mateusz B. Bryning, Daniel E. Milkie, Mohammad F. Islam, Lawrence A. Hough, James M. Kikkawa, and Arjun G. Yodh* Aerogels are ultralight, highly porous materials typically fabricated by subjecting a wet-gel precursor to critical-point-drying (CPD) or lyophilization (freeze-drying) in order to
For the heat treatment of carbon nanotubes, high temperatures over 2000°C are required to remove structural defects, like metallic impurities and vacancies. High temperatures are also required to change the structure of the tubes themselves from a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) to a double-walled carbon nanotube (DWNT) or even to a multi
Multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) filaments were grown by catalytic chemical vapor deposition on 2-D weave carbon fiber (CF) cloth substrates. Two different sets of experiments were carried out to understand the growth mechanism of these filaments.
an improved CVD method for the growth of SWNTs on surfaces using monodispersed Fe/Mo nanoparticles as the catalyst and a mixture of carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2) as feed gas. In contrast to CVD of methane, 9-12 this method allows higher efficiency for nanotube growth and easier control of the growth conditions, thus offering

Template-based chemical vapor deposition (TB-CVD) is a versatile technique for manufacturing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) or CNT-based devices for various applications. In this process, carbon is deposited by thermal decomposition of a carbon-based precursor gas inside the nanoscopic cylindrical pores of anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) templates to
