Paper Title:
Development of Carbon Nanostructures in an Intermediate Prepared from Sol-Gel Process
  Abstract

We report the observation of the carbon nanostructures simply obtained from the sol-gel process using zirconium alkoxide with subsequent heat-treatment. A Raman study showed that the well-defined D and G active modes in multi-walled carbon nanotube similarly appeared in the sample prepared at 350  and 400 . Those disappeared when the sample was heat-treated above 450 , at which its phase fully transformed to zirconia. We observed through HRTEM that either sphere or tube-like carbon nanostructure appeared dispersedly or in a cluster among the oxide aggregates at 350  and 400 . Our study demonstrated that both of the two carbon nanostructures occurred in an intermediate related to carbonization, which may exist during the heat-treatment even in air
