Carbon Nanotubes Prepared by CVD
Carbon nanotubes have been prepared by CVD from acetylene-argon gaseous system in tubular flow reactor. Acetylene gas was used as the carbon source needed for carbon nanotube growth. Several types of high porosity foam-like Ni substrate were used as catalyst material at pyrolysis temperatures from 673 to 973 K. Influence of the surface morphology of the foam-like Ni substrates on the carbon nanotubes morphology and growth have been studied.
