Synthesis of Carbon Nanotubes from Palm Oil Precursor by Aerosol-Assisted Catalytic CVD Method
Carbon nanotubes were produced from the aerosol-assisted catalytic CVD method using palm oil as the precursor and ferrocene as the catalyst. The CNTs were yielded at optimized temperature of 700oC and the Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope showed the image of CNTs produced. Raman Spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray and Thermogravimetric Analysis were then used to further study the Raman Spectra, purity and identification of samples.
