Abstract

Ni-Si mixed oxide nanocomposite was prepared by co-precipitation method with Ni(NO3)2 · 6H2O and tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS) at pH = 10.5 under reflux condition for 6 days. It was then used as a catalyst for the formation of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by CVD procedure. Characterization of the catalyst and the CNTs was carried out using X-ray diffractometry (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Raman spectroscopy. The results showed that Ni-Si mixed oxides nanorods with the average diameter of 3 to 4 nm play a key role in CNTs formation.
