Abstract

Nanoparticles of transition metal are important in the formation process of carbon nanotubes. We have prepared the nanoparticles containing Co and Mo by a reverse micelle method and applied them to the catalytic growth of nanotubes. The gas-phase catalytic reaction of the colloidal solution of the nanoparticles produced single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs).
