Improved growth of aligned carbon nanotubes by mechanical activation
Straight aligned carbon nanotubes with multiwalled cylindrical structure have been produced by pyrolysis of iron phthalocyanine (FePc) after ball milling treatment. The pre-ball milling treatment prevented the formation of curved nanotubes with bamboo or conelike structures. X-ray diffraction analysis revealed that the milled FePc has an activated and disordered structure, which contributes a lower vaporization temperature determined by thermal gravimetric analysis. The low formation...[Show more]
