Abstract

Carbon nanotube (CNT) forests were obtained from liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as the carbon source in the floating catalyst process. The CNTs obtained in the forest had a thinner diameter and lower growth rate than those obtained with other carbon sources, which was attributed to the existence of sulfur in the LPG. The use of unpurified LPG provides a controllable way to synthesize a CNT forest at low cost. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
