Abstract

Micro- or nanoflowers are self-organized, planar or 3D microstructures similar to macroscopic flowers. The interest in microflowers has increased in recent years because of many potential applications of microflowers, due to their high specific surface area. The analysis of the morphology of carbon flower-like microstructures produced in low-current plasma, generated by high voltage electrical discharge in a mixture of cyclohexane with argon as the carrier gas has been presented in the paper. It was shown that various carbon microstructures, including microfibers and microflowers of different pattern, can be synthesized on the electrodes by the same plasma method, at various process parameters.
