The role of cobalt in carbon nanotube synthesis

Gilbert D. Nessim, Matteo Seita

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are currently one of most researched novel nanomaterialsfor many future applications because of their exceptional properties. Chemical vapordeposition on samples with selectedcatalytic materials is a popular synthesis approach.Cobalt, one of the ferromagnetic metals, is commonly used as a catalyst material forgrowing CNTs. The synthesis principles and growth mechanisms of CNTs grown usingcobalt compounds as catalysts will be discussed.
