The Effects of Size of Catalysts on the Morphology of Carbon Fibers
A simple method was reported for synthesis of carbon nanofibers. Ethanol burner was employed as the setup. Different morphological carbon nanofibers were synthesized by the decomposition of ethanol. As-grown carbon nanofibers were characterized. The results indicate that depending on the size of catalyst, carbon deposits with different morphologies were produced.
