Abstract

Temperature dependence on synthesis of carbon nanotube by thermal catalytic decomposition of hydrocarbon was investigated. Benzene, thiophene, and iron(III)phthalocyanine are used for synthesis. As a result, the thickness of 20 nm, 5 to 10 layers solid structured carbon nanotube was obtained.
