Synthesis of carbon nanomaterials by a catalytic disproportionation of carbon monoxide Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract Low‐temperature synthesis of multi‐walled carbon nanofibers and nanocapsules using catalytic disproportionation of carbon monoxide is reported. The reaction products were studied by TEM, HRTEM, and XRD. In addition, we demonstrate that hot isostatic pressing of our carbon nanopowder furnishes a promising route for the controlled fabrication of novel graphite‐like materials reinforced with multi‐walled carbon nanofibers and nanocapsules.
