TEMPERATURE DISTRIBUTION INSIDE CVD REACTOR AND ITS INFLUENCE AT CARBON NANOCONTAINERS SYNTHESIS PROCESS


Abstract

Carbon nanotubes has tremendous properties, therefore possible application range is very wide, e.g. in hyperthermia process (after ferromagnetic material filling). This article presents iron filled multi-walled carbon nanotubes (Fe-MWCNTs) synthesis technique leading to production of high purity, high iron content nanocontainers. One of the most important synthesis parameters is temperature and it has been chosen as a main estimation of process efficiency. Also characterization of obtained material is presented.
