Self-assembly of carbon nanotube polyhedrons inside microchannels

Author affiliations

Abstract

Well-defined carbon polyhedrons with faceted morphologies and hollow internal structures made of self-organized multi-walled carbon nanotubes have been fabricated by gas phase catalytic CVD inside microchannels, of which the confined space is critical for the formation of polyhedral structures with hexagonal, heptagonal and octagonal cross-sections that show superhydrophobic properties, with the contact angle up to 162°.
