Abstract:

Silver nanoparticles have been wrapped on multiwall carbon nanotubes though a green synthesis approach that has advantages over other conventional methods that involve chemical agents associated with environmental toxicity and damage of carbon nanotubes. Acacia was used as a green stabilizer for multiwall carbon nanotubes as well as a stabilizer and reducing agent for silver nanoparticles. Generation of silver-decorated multiwall carbon nanotubes was confirmed by UV-Vis spectrophotometry and X-ray diffraction. Generation of silver nanoparticles (5–10 nm) wrapped on MWCNTs was confirmed by field emission scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy.
