  • Silicon carbide (SiC) nanorods were synthesised by reacting multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with Si particles in a NaCl–NaF binary salt for 4 h at 1100–1200 °C in Ar. Reaction products were analysed by a combination of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), including aberration corrected lattice imaging and electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS). At 1100 °C, 3C–SiC became detectable by XRD but unreacted Si and CNTs were still dominant, while, at 1150 °C, SiC… CONTINUE READING
