Paper Title:
Synthesis of MWCNT-Alumina Hybrid as Composite Reinforcement Using Nickel Catalyst
  Abstract

This work focuses on synthesis of MWCNT-alumina hybrid compound via methane decomposition process using nickel catalyst. The catalysts prepared through in situ process by using nickel salt and aluminium powder which then calcined at 900oC followed by methane decomposition process to grow MWCNT on alumina surface. The Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy (HRTEM) images confirmed the formation of MWCNT with homogenous dispersion on alumina particles.
