We have developed a new approach for preparing graphitic carbon nanofiber and nanotube ensembles. This approach entails chemical vapor deposition (CVD) based synthesis of carbon within the pores of an alumina template membrane with or without a Ni catalyst.
Chemical Vapor Depositions for Carbon Nanotubes Synthesis 89 First method used for CNTs fabrication by Iijima in 1991 was arc discharge  where the growth process is held between two graphite - usually water-cooled -electrodes at high temperatures (above 1700°C). It is performed in . a chamber filled . with helium. at

Carbon nanotubes are a new form of completely artificial crystalline carbon, which have never been found as a natural form. These fascinating hollow cylinders can be considered as prototypes of one‐dimensional quantum wires, exhibit peculiar chemical‐physical properties very different from those of other C‐based nanostructures, and are envisaged to have potential in a wide range of
Abstract: Carbon nanotubes are grown by catalytic chemical vapour deposition over components of electronic devices. Samples are analyzed by thermogravimetry, scanning and transmission electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
The nucleation and growth of aligned multiwall carbon nanotubes by microwave plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition have been studied. The nanotubes nucleate and grow from catalytic cobalt islands on a silicon substrate surface, with both their diameter and length dependent on the size of the cobalt islands.

Chemical vapor deposition is a classical deposition method to produce high quality and high-performance solid thin film materials, such as carbon nanotube, graphene, diamond, and metal [15, 16]. Therefore, this method was widely employed to grow carbon materials on the surface of clay minerals by chemical reaction and/or decomposition of volatile precursors  .
by a separate physical vapor deposition PVD technique. When heated, the continuous catalyst layer disaggre-gates and forms small particles, with size controlled by the layer thickness in the range of 1 to 10 nm . Then, the growth of nanotubes occurs through catalytic decomposition of a carbon gas source over the catalyst. The

Kumar and Ando. zone, while carbon crystallization (being an endothermic process) absorbs some heat from the metal's precipitation zone. This precise thermal gradient inside the metal parti- cle keeps the process on.
As a part of an introductory laboratory course in the Chemical and Materials Physics (ChaMP) graduate program at UC Irvine, a module was designed wherein students synthesized carbon nanotubes and performed characterization studies using field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM).
The main gas phase intermediates, leading the efficient chemical vapor deposition (CVD) growth of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), have been explored through systematic experimental and theoretical studies.
Chemical vapor deposition of hydrocarbons over a metal catalyst is a classical method that has been used to produce various carbon materials such as carbon fibers and filaments for over twenty years. Large amounts of CNTs can be formed by catalytic CVD of acetylene over Cobalt and iron catalysts supported on silica or zeolite.
