Abstract

Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of iron oxide nanoparticles have been prepared using carboxylic-acid-terminated dendrimers. The iron-containing SAM was used as the catalyst for growth of vertical arrays of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). This approach has the potential for producing diameter controlled CN...

Abstract: Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of iron oxide nanoparticles have been prepared using carboxylic-acid-terminated dendrimers. The iron-containing SAM was used as the catalyst for growth of vertical arrays of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). This approach has the potential for producing diameter controlled CNTs from premade catalyst nanoparticles as well as large scale production of CNTs by chemical vapor deposition.
