Synthesis of Carbon Based Flower-Like-Microstructure
Abstract:Carbon fiber based carbon micro-flowers were produced using catalytic chemical vapour deposition technique on reproducible basis using specially designed nickel sulphide catalyst powder. The purity of the product is ∼95% as revealed by thermal analysis. Scanning electron microscopy analysis also confirms the absence of any impurities (e.g., amorphous carbon). Surface area analysis reveals a large surface area in the range 300–400 m2/gm with adsorption average pore diameter ∼5 nm. Possible uses are proposed.
