A Possible Route to Large-Scale Production of SWNTs through a Combination of the Substrate and Floating Catalyst Methods
Abstract:We describe a possible route for large-scale synthesis of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) by a combination of the substrate and floating methods. The template prohibits metal particle aggregation, resulting in high-purity SWNT growth, and the three-dimensional floating seeded state of the template induces improved yields of SWNTs in a semi-continuous system. The SWNTs obtained by this method exhibit large variations of texture (isolated tubes and bundles) and a wide range of diameters (0.4–4 nm).
