Synthesis of Carbon Nanotubes Using SBA-15 as a Template by the Reaction of Methane and Carbon Dioxide
Abstract:Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were synthesized using Ni loaded mesoporous SBA-15 as a template by reaction of methane and carbon dioxide. The influences of nickel content on the selectivity and crystallinity of CNTs were investigated. It can be seen that the crooked CNTs with a diameter varied from 9.9, 12.5 to 36.5 nm with creasing content of Ni from 5, 15, and 30 wt%/SBA-15. A uniform diameter and good quality CNTs were obtained in our system.
