Decoration of Multi-walled Carbon Nanotubes by Metal Nanoparticles and Metal Oxides using Chemical Evaporation Method

PM Masipa, T Magadzu, B Mkhondo

Abstract


The powder patterns of the as-prepared and acid treated MWCNTs are shown by the XRD spectra. The TEM results show the microstructure of the multi-walled carbon nanotubes well decorated with metal nanoparticles (Cu, Fe, Ni) and metal oxides (CuO, Fe2O3, NiO), while the SEM show the surface morphology.

KEYWORDS Multi-walled carbon nanotubes, metal nanoparticles, metaloxides, scanning electronmicroscopy, transmission electronmicroscopy.
