Abstract

Carbon nanopipes catalyzed by high purity nickel oxide (NiO) nanoparticles were reported. The nanocrystals catalysts were first prepared using precipitation technique and characterized by x-ray diffraction (XRD), energy dispersive x-ray (EDX) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). It is subsequently used as catalyst for the formation of nanotubes. Pure phase, rhombohedral nickel oxide formation was identified from the XRD data, with the major peak located at 2θ = 43.29° corresponding to the (202) plane. A pulsed laser ablation deposition technique (PLAD) was used to produce the CNTs. From the SEM micrograph, deposited CNTs shows a web-like structure, while the HR-TEM reveals carbon nanopipes with a length of 10 micron and diameter of 430 nm, suggesting that the nanocrystals aggregate and forms bigger cluster as a consequence of the ablation process.
