Synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes by catalytic decomposition of acetylene with Fe/Co/MgO, Co/Zn/Al and (C5H7O2)3Mn/Al as catalysts


Keywords: , , , ,

We report our studies on the effect of various catalysts in the synthesis of carbon nanomaterials. The as-prepared carbon nanomaterials were characterized by Raman spectroscopy, high resolution transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. The catalysts Fe/Co/MgO and Co/Zn/Al produced cylindrical carbon nanotubes with tris(acetylacetonato) manganese forming carbon nanospheres in a catalytic chemical vapor decomposition chamber.
