Sea urchin shaped carbon nanostructured materials: carbon nanotubes immobilized on hollow carbon spheres

Author affiliations

Abstract

Novel sea urchin shaped nanostructured carbon spheres (carbon nano-urchins) were fabricated by the growth of carbon nanotubes on the surface of hollow carbon spheres. The carbon nano-urchins were successfully used as a catalyst support for methanol electrochemical oxidation.
