Synthesis of sp2 carbon nano- and microrods with novel structure and morphology

Author affiliations

Abstract

A unique form of carbon rods has been synthesized by reacting C6Cl6 with Li at 523 K. TEM images show that the structure is graphite-like, with the layers arranged perpendicular to the long axis of the rods. The average rod size is 0.3 × 5 µm. The larger ones are 1 × 10 µm. The ratio of graphite-like to disordered carbon atoms, determined by solid-state 13C NMR, is 1∶1.
