Characterization of Fe-Mo Alloyed Nanoparticles Synthesized by Chemical Vapor Condensation Process


Article Preview

Iron(Fe)-molybdenum(Mo) alloyed nanopaticles and nanowires were produced by the chemical vapor condensation(CVC) process using the pyrolysis of iron pentacarbonyl(Fe(CO)5) and molybdenum hexacarbonyl(Mo(CO)6). The influence of CVC parameter on the formation of nanoparticle, nanowire and size control was studied. The size of Fe-Mo alloyed nanoparticles can be controlled by quantity of gas flow. Also, Fe-Mo alloyed nanowires were produced by control of the work chamber pressure. Obtained nanoparticles and nanowires were investigated by field emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction.
