Template synthesis of carbon nanotubules

Tee, Jia Chee and M. Sanip, Suhaila and Ismail, Ahmad Fauzi (2007) Template synthesis of carbon nanotubules. In: International Conference on Advancement of Materials and Nanotechnology 2007, 29th May- 1st June 2007, The City Bayview Hotel, Langkawi, Kedah.



The template synthesis of carbon nanostructures formed in porous anodic aluminium oxide (AAO) template with a pore size of 200nm by a liquid phase impregnation of the template with a polymer, polyfurfuryl alcohol, followed by carbonization in studied. The temperatures of exposure to furfuryl alcohol vapour were varied between 50 and 70C. The resultant carbon nanotubules formed were hollow with open ends having diameter ranging from 200-300nm which is in agreement with the pore size of the template used. The BET surface area was found to increase from 11.6m2/g before pyrolysis to 90.2m2/g after pyrolysis as a result of the formation of carbon nanotubules.
