Coating Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes with CdS Nanoparticles Through Electron Beam Irradiation
Abstract:CdS nanoparticles were successfully coated on multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) via electron beam irradiation in the water system. The resulting products were analyzed by XRD, FT-IR, UV-vis, TEM and AFM all kinds of characterization techniques. The results showed that cadmium cations were introduced to the surface of MWNTs through ion exchange, and by chemical reaction between cadmium cations on the carbon nanotubes and sodium thiosulfate pentahydrate under electron beam irradiation, cadmium sulfide nanoparticles were densely deposited on carbon nanotubes.
