    • Carbon nanotubes from camphor by catalytic CVD 

      KUMAR, M; ZHAO, XL; ANDO, Y; IIJIMA, S; SHARON, M; HIRAHARA, K (TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2002)
      Multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) have been grown from simple pyrolysis of camphor, a botanical hydrocarbon, at 900degreesC for 15 min in argon atmosphere at ambient pressure using ferrocene as a catalyst. The nanotube ...
    • Spongy carbon nanobeads - a new material 

      SHARON, M; MUKHOPADHYAY, K; YASE, K; IIJIMA, S; ANDO, Y; ZHAO, XL (ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 1998)
      Spherical carbon nanobeads (solid and hollow) of two sizes of around 500-850 nm (large) and 250 nm (small) were synthesized by pyrolysing camphor vapour at 1000 degrees C in an argon atmosphere, using ferrocene, as catalyst, ...
