Abstract:

We performed Monte Carlo simulations for single- and double-walled carbon nanotubes intercalated with different atomic species (Fe, Ni, Co, and B). A relationship was established between the length of a carbon nanotube and the number as well as the type of the intercalating atoms. Carbon nanotube systems intercalated with Ni, Co, and B were shown to be more stable with temperature and retained a greater internal concentration of the intercalate atoms compared to the case of Fe intercalated systems where a substantial extrusion of atoms was observed as a result of thermal treatment.
