abstract

  • In this paper, a simplified ethanol-assisted arc discharge method was developed for the fabrication of multi-wall carbon nanotubes in high quality. Carbon nanotubes with high purity (80-90%) were obtained through controlling the current (15-25 V, 10-25 A) and ethanol concentration (70-100%). The products were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), and Raman spectrometry.
