Chemical Vapor Deposition

HYBRIDIZATION OF CARBON NANOTUBES AND ALUMINA VIA CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD)

 

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

Ø  Synthesized hybrid carbon nanotube-alumina via chemical vapour deposition.

Ø  Carbon nanotube has been growth on the alumina particle which has the diameter of approximately 10 - 30 nm.

ABOUT PROJECT

The multi-scale hybridisation of carbon nanotube (CNT) and alumina (Al2O3) was synthesized by using chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The idea of hybridization between the CNT and Al2O3 particles is to prevent the agglomeration of the CNT due to van der Waals attractions. The Al2O3 particles work as “vehicles” for the CNTs to disperse homogenously in the epoxy matrix and improve the particle/matrix interface.
