Data for the green synthesis of exceptional braided, helical carbon nanotubes and nano spiral platelets made directly from CO2

  title={Data for the green synthesis of exceptional braided, helical carbon nanotubes and nano spiral platelets made directly from CO2},
  author={Xinye Liu and Gad Licht and Stuart Licht},
This article describes base-line data used in conjunction with the Materials Today Chemistry article “The green synthesis of exceptional braided, helical carbon nanotubes and nano spiral platelets made directly from CO2. ” The data includes Raman, XRD, SEM, TEM, EDX and high contrast TEM of conventional carbon nanotubes (CNTs) synthesized from carbon dioxide electrolytic splitting in molten electrolyte for comparison to synthesized helical carbon nanotubes grown in the main article. This data…

Rational Synthesis of Helically Coiled Carbon Nanowires and Nanotubes through the Use of Tin and Indium Catalysts
Helically coiled carbon nanotubes (HCNTs) and nanowires (HCNWs) represent novel nanostructural morphology and have technological and scientific significance. Their potential applications span high
Helical carbon nanotubes: catalytic particle size-dependent growth and magnetic properties.
This study showed that the CPS plays a key role in the selectivity to HCNTs, yield, and morphology of the carbon products, and a small catalytic particle is favorable to HC NT formation.
The Texture of Catalytically Grown Coil-Shaped Carbon Nanotubules
The growth of micron-size carbon fibres from thermal decomposition of hydrocarbons catalyzed by a metal has been widely studied. Coil-shaped fibres often grow among straight or twisted filaments.
Data on SEM, TEM and Raman Spectra of doped, and wool carbon nanotubes made directly from CO2 by molten electrolysis
This SEM, TEM and Raman Spectra and economic calculations data provides a benchmark for carbon nanotubes synthesized via molten electrolyte via the carbon dioxide to carbon nanotube (C2CNT) process
One pot facile transformation of CO2 to an unusual 3-D nano-scaffold morphology of carbon
It is found that a lower temperature of synthesis, lower concentrations of lithium carbonate, and higher current density promotes CNS growth while suppressing CNT growth.
Transformation of the greenhouse gas CO2 by molten electrolysis into a wide controlled selection of carbon nanotubes
Abstract This paper demonstrates a highly favored route for the synthesis of controlled nanostructures at high rate, high yield, and low cost by molten carbonate electrolysis splitting of CO2. We
Magnetic carbon nanotubes: Carbide nucleated electrochemical growth of ferromagnetic CNTs from CO2
Abstract This study demonstrates that CO2 can be split by molten carbonate electrolysis (1) to grow magnetic carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and (2) that the process can be initiated by carbide nucleation
Kinetically Controlled Growth of Helical and Zigzag Shapes of Carbon Nanotubes
This paper focuses on the growth mechanism of the multiwalled carbon nanotubes exhibiting helical and zigzag growth morphologies. Our data support a kinetically controlled growth model in which the
Calcium metaborate induced thin walled carbon nanotube syntheses from CO2 by molten carbonate electrolysis
An electrosynthesis is presented to transform the greenhouse gas CO2 into an unusually thin walled, smaller diameter morphology of Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) at high yield and coulombic efficiency of the 4-electron CO2 reduction in a molten carbonate electrolyte.
