Abstract

MASIPA, Pheladi M.; MAGADZU, Takalani  and  MKHONDO, Bridget. Decoration of multi-walled carbon nanotubes by metal nanoparticles and metal oxides using chemical evaporation method. S.Afr.j.chem. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.66, pp.00-00. ISSN 1996-840X.

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; metal oxides; scanning electron microscopy; transmission electron microscopy.
