Improved growth of aligned carbon nanotubes by mechanical activation

Chen, Y.; Chadderton, L. T.


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]
