Catalytically active nanostructures derived from self-assembled block copolymer templates for rationally synthesizing single-walled carbon nanotubes and understanding the growth mechanism

, , , , ,
Employing self-assembled catalyst-containing block copolymer templates, we have successfully generated a variety of highly ordered and uniform-sized catalytically active transition metal nanostructures. These catalyst-containing nanostructures have been used to produce high-quality and single-walled carbon nanotubes [...]
