Transmission electron microscopy investigation of substitution reactions from carbon nanotube template to silicon carbide nanowires

Li, Chi; Fitz Gerald, John; Zou, Jin; Chen, Ying


Substitution reactions between multiwalled carbon nanotubes and silicon monoxide vapour have been investigated using transmission electron microscopy. Different reactions occurred inside the multiwalled nanotubes and on the nanotube external surfaces, resulting in the formation of silicon carbide nanowires with a core–shell structure. The substitution reaction process and end products are strongly affected by nanotube structures and a ball milling treatment of the starting materials.
