Article Preview

Mechanochemical process was employed to prepare Fe/MgO and Fe/NaCl nanocomposites. The carbon nanostructures (nanotubes and carbon-encapsulated Fe nanoparticles) were successfully synthesized using two nanocomposites as the catalyst. Our wok revealed that the morphology of Fe nanoparticles in the Fe/MgO nanocomposites depended on the distribution and particle size of iron oxides in the precursors. The size of Fe nanoparticles greatly affected their catalytic properties and the morphologies of carbon nanotubes. The successful carbon encapsulation of Fe nanoparticles was achieved by using the mechanochemically derived Fe/NaCl catalyst.
