Abstract

Aligned carbon nanotubes are simply synthesized in a single step by the thermal decomposition of gaseous mixture of C2H2 and Fe(CO)5 as a catalyst precursor. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes were produced on the most of the heated zone of the furnace with high packing density. The diameter and length is 20-50nm and about 55 μm, respectively. The flow rate and temperature plays critical role in the synthesis of carbon nanotubes.
