Studies on the Preparation and Characterisation of Carbon Nanostructures
We present a study on the preparation of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) using chemical vapour deposition (CVD). The CVD produced MWCNT and single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) produced with a laser ablation technique were then chemically modified by substituting carbon atoms with boron and nitrogen atoms. The morphology and the crystal structure of the new class of nanostructures were analyzed by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
