I used the simplest method which is arc discharge method but you can use also Chemical vapor deposition but you have to have a furnace for it and you but your sample into a tube and when condense it they all stuck on the sample and they are your CNTs but sometime you have just nanoparticles you have to look into them by SEM, TEM, AFM...
Arc discharge is simplest as ı said: ıf you have a power suppy and graphite you used power supply as a n cathode and the graphite side is your anode and you apply a field and your graphite become CNTs ,as expected, and they are falling into the water (you can see my lab pictures here they are all arc discharge method
Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
