Growth of Carbon Nanotubes on Surface of Carbon Fibers Rod
The growth of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) from surface of carbon fibers rods (CFRs) as used supports is under investigation using the Fe-catalytic chemical vapor deposition method. TEM studies indicate that under the experimental conditions Fe catalysts on CFRs produces mostly bundles of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). SEM results show the best presence of bundles of MWCNTs for Fe catalysts of 6.5 mol % at 800°C.
