Tuyển tập báo cáo các nghiên cứu khoa học quốc tế ngành hóa học dành cho các bạn yêu hóa học tham khảo đề tài: SiC Nanowires Synthesized by Rapidly Heating a Mixture of SiO and Arc-Discharge Plasma Pretreated Carbon Black
Carbon nanotubes were identified for the first time in 1991 by Sumio Iijima at
the NEC Research Laboratory, using high resolution transmission electron microscopy,
while studying the soot made from by-products obtained during the
synthesis of fullerenes by the electric arc discharge method. In this soot, Iijima
clearly observed the so-called multiwalled nanotubes, molecular carbon tubes
with diameters in the nanometer range, consisting of carbon atoms arranged
in a seamless graphitic structure rolled up to form concentric cylinders.
The extraordinary mechanical properties and unique electrical properties of carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
have stimulated extensive research activities across the world since their discovery by Sumio Iijima of the
NEC Corporation in the early 1990s. Although early research focused on growth and characterization,
these interesting properties have led to an increase in the number of investigations focused on application
development in the past 5 years.
