Influence of Carbon Sources and Catalytic Precursors on the Products Prepared by Catalytic Combustion
It is very important to study the effects of various factors on synthesis of carbon nanofibers for controlled synthesis, which plays a significant role in realizing desired nanostructures or nanodevices for applications. In this report, we employed different carbon source and different catalyst precursor solution, respectively, and studied the effects of those on carbon nanofibers that were synthesized by catalytic combustion process. We have characterized the as-grown carbon nanofibers by employing scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for deep understanding.
