Using a conventional thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system, ethanol vapor was enclosed in a reactor, i.e., no flow, with Co/Mo dip-coated quartz substrates to synthesize submillimeter long vertically aligned single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) films successfully. The no-flow CVD method yielded an increase in film thickness of up to 0.11 mm(More)
Cylindrical carbon nanotubes (CNTs) pretreated by UV irradiation were able to react with NH(3) to give nitrogen-containing CNTs without destroying their vertically aligned morphology. This process provided incorporation of nitrogen mostly at pyridinic and pyrrolic sites and promoted disordering, which was correlated with decreased electrical conductivity of(More)
