The Synthesis of Nitrigen Doped Carbon Nanotube with Different Catalyst
Bamboo-like nitrogen-doped carbon (CNX) nanotubes have been synthesized by chemical vapor deposition at high reaction temperature of 850°C. The diethylamine has been used as carbon source and Fe/SBA-15 and Ni/SBA-15 have been used as molecular sieve catalyst. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) observations showed that the diameter and the wall thickness of CNx nanotubes were increased with the change of catalyst from Fe/SBA-15 to Ni/SBA-15.
